Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Several times while visiting Taiwan I noticed a very popular and ancient decorative pattern appearing in windows, packagings, in some metro halls, temples and even on the sewer lids of Taipei.
    It is an ornament with Swastikas, which are linked originally to Buddhism.
    The complexity and symmetry of that design appealed to me firstly as a visual and then as a musical structure.
    I mapped this pattern's structure from four different corners, creating a set of four melodic lines of two sounds.
    This composition is therefore a musical translation of that structure.
