This piano composition is inspired by our universe. The music starts with a giant chord that represents the Big Bang, or the Original Intention if you prefer. Just as the Big Bang contained the matter and energy to create our entire universe, this chord contains all the notes this composition needs. As time passes, the chord becomes arpeggio, then melody, then detached notes, so as to reflect the expansion of our universe. As you listen, imagine planets rotating around their suns. As they revolve, they constantly move away from you, then come back half a cycle later. Departures followed by returns. Questions and answers. This simple alternance serves as the main structure of this piece.
My piano is a delight to play when it has just been tuned. Individual notes sound pure and have a beauty on their own. They invite the player to get lost in the timbre, not the music. A recent tuning inspired me to play just notes, and create this sound generator. The notes that have been used are borrowed from the Ionian mode (also known as the major scale). This mode is described as bright and happy, with little tension. Every time you reload this generator, you create a new instance: a new universe, if you like, but one that uses the same ingredients, the same set of notes. I am currently working on two other sets: Aeolian and Phrygian.
