Description:
Program note (English): [Première: November 17, 2002 - Concertgebouw, Bruges - Koninklijke Filharmonie van Vlaanderen cond. Lucas Vis] - The title of this piece is a text by Kahlil Gibran from Sand and Foam (1926). It is nice that musicians can perform a piece of music according to signs on paper. This saves a lot of time and discussion. Especially with a large orchestra, time is expensive and discussion is risky. Notation is practical and careful: bar lines clearly define the music in small blocks and noted define the pitch. This is why composing music is like LEGO; big and small pieces are available, red and yellow ones, sometimes a little puppet or a pair of wheels. As long as your manual is correct, the results will be fine. If you prefer clay modelling to playing with LEGO, than composing is a complicated business. Between the notes lies a world of sound which is impossible convert exactly into notation. A rehearsal is brief and the work of building up the piece does not allow you the time you
might want to sculpt, transform and shape the inner world of sound. This piece tries to disagree with the usual reign of the bar line-security imposed by the notation system. The order of convention appeared hard to resist though... - MERLIJN TWAALFHOVEN
