Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Spectral analysis was used as a tool to construct the inner details of a cymbal swell. The piece opens with the imaginary echo of cymbal swell. The spectral detail of a cymbal swell are then displayed with varying musical ideas, representing different angles of perception. The bushmen who lived in Southern Africa would go through a process of a transcendental nature when painting their rock art. The Praying Mantis is one mythical creature that was painted. The process of moving into the inner details of sound represents the spiritual world communicated by through the Praying Mantis.
