Product details

Altjiranga mitjina (2009) is an Aranda expression which means approximately "the timeless dimension of dreams". After a slow introduction, the main part of the composition is based upon the "looping" of a single set of pitches, which the composer sees as "an approximation of expressive timelessness, [resulting in] in a kind of meditation". In classical terms, one might call Altjiranga mitjina a sort of passacaglia, although, in contrast to traditional procedure, the composer varies the tempo and pitch of the theme, as well as allowing it to overlap with itself. Faster, more rhythmic sections and a brief violin cadenza are among the means by which the composer expands the work's emotional range, without every losing sight of his overall aims in this beautifully crafted and expressive composition.
