The reflex of
When someone is in a coma, the entire well-being no longer works. Any form of time and awareness seems to be absent. It is a kind of unintelligible void.
This surreal brought me to the question when social stress arises, is there no kind of coma.
From time to time, many new ideas and currents and strength measurements arise that somehow cause social stress, fear and emptiness. Not the idea and
well-being is more important but the urge for power and manipulation seems to be more necessary.
In the composition I use elements from the Baroque period, in which a lot of repetition, decoration, boredom and overload prevailed and people started
to see themselves as the center of attention. The music gives the reflex of life, as it were. The orchestra stands for the large organ, the complexity of society with all those individuals.
'The Reflex of' consists of three stages, namely:
The opening starts, as it were, with a quietly carried breathing, and is followed by an increasing role of stress. Like a complex engine, the music continues with a lot of repetition and an apparent lightness. Due to the abundant use of decorations and dynamics, the melodies are no longer directly perceptible.
A great void arises. In this melodies and musical ideas emerge from nowhere, but whenever they start to form, emptiness takes over again. There is no more development, just only reflexes. However, there is a depth structure, this represents the subconscious course in which all this takes place.
The subconscious is above the drive of life. Here again the active of life is represented, but still with an unreal element in it. Like what is happened.
The Baroque elements return, but now more orderly, a kind of dance in space, with a clearer musical drive effect.
