Rush Hour in Celestial Streets (2007)

Listen to an mp3 excerpt

Program Note:


I have a poetical vision of angels in their angelic vehicles, touching lightly their Jericho-like vehicle-horns, hurrying elegantly, falling in gentle vehicle-crashes... and in the end, when all of them get home, few little pieces of white featherlets are still floating in the air. However, I have no verification, that this truly is in the music. I even thought it out only after writing the piece.

Musically You would find there a lot of microintervals in chords, which are almost consonant, but should be full of interference vibrations. These aggregates are echoed in various ways. The other section is speedy, noicy, with a lot of loops. Form – one 15 min. long arc with gradation, culmination and again calming down to peaceful silence.
