Sol LeWitt Variations

2 11 2010

“The piece I present is inspired by Sol LeWitt ‘s visual work All variations of incomplete open cubes, 1974, which portrays the decomposition of a cube of which only some sides are shown sequentially to the public. In my composition, these “schematic” figures are replaced by musical phrases that remain “open” to all possible combinations, creating a circular and permutable effect when listening”.

“Unlike John Cage, who most often relied on criteria derived from random or mystical approaches (for ex. I Ching), LeWitt’s work is strictly geometrical and does not leave many opportunities for psychological or religious considerations. I have tried to recreate the feeling of space inside and around the “cube”, as if this were a room, each time considering the possible links between harmonic figures”.
