Kodam Gobar

The piece won the first price in the international composition-contest Fereydoon Moshiri, announced by the ensemble work in progress and Hamburger Klangwerktage 2011.

I work here with a flexible interval notation. The musicians each have to fall self-responsibe decisions regarding the melodic progression of their part, thus generating aleatoric counterpoints and harmonies. Yet the piece’s materiality and structure are not affected by these decisions.

Keeping the music in a permanent state of uncertainty about it’s own progression, I wish to prevent the emergence of routine, and establish a certain level of awareness.
