Product details

Within the perfect unity of the sky above, it is the irregular patterns in stars that bring me a sense of mystique. Seeking to create a similar disordered but cohesive sound world, I allowed a degree of chance into my work for the first time. A random number series governs the length and density of the falling piano arpeggios that give the piece its name. Overlayed in a way that avoids a regular rhythm, the arpeggios gradually descend into a lower range. From individual piano notes, melodic material emerges in the clarinet and in natural harmonics in the cello. These melodic lines take on their own character as they deviate further from the piano, reaching up as the arpeggios sink deeper. The aural effect could be that of the stars falling slowly around us, or perhaps floating by as we ourselves rise up and leave the earth behind.
