Product details

I started research for this piece in the beginning of 2010. I studied particle behaviour, the search for the Higgs Boson, astrophysics, the universe and it's dimensions and the behaviour of time. My intention was to find a master plan that would generate the behaviour of each musical line.

From the beginning I knew it was going to be a piece for chamber orchestra consisting of only solo instruments. Single winds, just a marimba and only 19 strings to avoid the massive sound puddles in the string sections.

I wanted to back away as a directing force in the creation of this piece from a need to write an abstract piece and have mathematics, chance or whatever formal design construct the piece.

It was a great journey, but without finding the intended goal. Finally I decided to just start writing, though acknowledging I was influenced by my self-inflicted brainwash, using a little cell of fast notes as a building block. And so the piece came into existence in about 4 weeks at the beginning of 2011.
