Sheet Music: Score
Un’immagine mobile dell’eternità : for reciter, harmonically tuned guzheng and visuals / Andrián Pertout.
Un'immagine mobile dell'eternità or 'A Moving Image of Eternity' was especially composed for Chiu Tan Ching (Hong Kong, People's Republic of China) as 'A Collaboration with Australian Visual Artist Elisabeth Bodey and Australian Poet A.J. Carruthers' as part of the Australia-China Institute for Arts and Culture (Western Sydney University) 'Poetic Energies Across Sonic Space' Project. The work is dedicated to the memory of my friend Claudio Frau (b Buenos Aires, 17 Jan. 1963; d Melbourne, 25 Apr. 2017) and serves as an exploration of the musical implications of combinatoriality as an organizational determinant via the utilization of a series of combinatorial designs presented in Looking at Numbers (2014) by American minimalist composer and music theorist (also former student of Morton Feldman) Tom Johnson, and mathematician and musicologist Franck Jedrzejewski. It also adopts a variety of compositional techniques developed during the twentieth century by American experimentalist composer Conlon Nancarrow and documented by Kyle Gann in The Music of Conlon Nancarrow (1995). Philosophically, the work integrates the Chinese concept of 'Timeless Music' as well as American author Thomas McFarlane's hypothesis of 'mathematical' symmetry behind Plato's cosmological statement 'Time is a Moving Image of Eternity' (from Timaeus, 360 BCE).
