Description:
Celestial Colours was written in one of the multiharmonic, multispectral modes that I have devised and use. The specific modes are based upon new formations of sounds beyond the 8va, and in this specific piece are based on 64 notes.
I tried to maintain a spontaneous equilibrium. Each musical element appears and then disappears without any additional treatment, like the feeling of a moment that will be duly succeeded by another.
The sound of the flute and vibraphone (specially played with a bow) reminds me of the colourful picture “Celestial Colours” that I once saw on NASA’s website and which forms part of the Eagle Nebula.
