Facing Chaos


The struture of Facing Chaos (O.29). Probably one of my most structured piece to date. It uses sort of a quaternary form, a basic rhythm that is continuosly and variously elaborated, a couple of motives, one heard from the beginning, another mid-way throught to the end, also variously elaborated, and an array of 6- to 9-tones Maessien scales. Rhythmc orchestration throughout the piece takes (very loose) inspiration from Indian Talas, generating groups of three-phrases rhythms that are repeated in diminutions or canonic imitaion.
