Sheet Music: Score
Gestalt Climate : for two pianos / Michael Kieran Harvey.
by Michael Kieran Harvey (2019)
Two independent works combine to suggest a menacing analogy of climate catastrophe. Piano one plays a freely-interrupted version of, in this case, my Module Fugue, while piano two responds with a scaffolding of the aggregate material from the same work, performed implacably against the piano one interruptions. While the individual parts are interdependent, when combined they create a new whole which is greater than the parts, a feature of the concept of gestalt "prägnanz". In this way, the analogy is drawn between the interference of humans with natural climate processes, producing an outcome of awe-inspiring and unpredictable consequences.
