Work no. 243
This long piece is an extension of the seventh movement of Star Colors, a large piano cycle I composed in 2022. The original movement, Lavender, was written using four distinct rhythmic patterns. Neither melodies nor harmonies ever repeated, but these rhythms remained the same, only multiplying with each section: ABCD, AABBCCDD, AAABBBCCCDDD, and so on. They'd pile on top of each other, creating very messy textures. The more polyrhythmic, the more convoluted the rhythms became, the more difficult it was for me to adjust the melodic lines, and the more difficult the piece was to play. By the end of it, it was almost impossible to perform for a human pianist, and that was with just four instances of the same rhythm playing.
