4C2 (4 choose 2), as the meaning of its title, is an investigation of how many combinations you get if you have four items and choose two at a time?
As a composer focusing on rational intonation, my daily work circles around numbers and mathematical equations, which become a source of inspiration for writing music. In this specific piece, I wanted to explore form-making possibilities based on permutation, combination, and derangement with one single equation, 4C2.
The rhythmic contents of the piece are derived from the mathematical ratios that describe the microintervals in Persian classical music. They are interpreted as the polyrhythmic contents that build up a complex sonic narration for percussive sounds.
