Initially, this piece was designed for spatially placed musicians throughout the venue - "webOrchestra". (The method was referenced in various patents.) The composition and orchestration of "Painted Music" uses a traditional concert format, simulated in the demo performance below. |
Reminding of a pointillistic painting, the piece utilizes staccato percussive variations of alternatively pulsating, 4 and 6 sixteenth-notes in an ostinato buildup to a climactic point, expressed in a rich chordal resolution.
It is immediately followed by an impressionistic transition to a lyrical, romantic song-like theme played by the strings. From a dreamy diminuendo the rhythms evolve again to lead to a brief and powerful coda.
The composition is clearly an attempt for the composer to unite certain elements of jazz atmosphere with classical music style in a radiant, exciting creation for a new kind of inspiration.
