Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Tapestry – a polychromic fabric, was an inspiration for the title of this piece of music, which has a decorative and repetitive character. According to the image of weaver’s art, the compositional principle consists of binding different attacks of sound in order to create a polychromy of timbre, dynamics and rhythm in time. The percussive attacks of piano are orchestrated by emergence and then disappearance of other instruments. An accumulation and superposition of pulsations gradually produce a complex rhythm and the role of each instrument is enriched. The absence of any harmonic movement results in a stable harmony that helps to hear neutral intervals (neither minor, nor major) made possible by to the use of microtones.
