still possible

My second volume of piano pieces, after ‘possible music’ (2012). Pieces 1-4 are more or less a direct continuation of ‘possible music’; written in a style that I would call ‘free chromaticism’, as opposed to ‘free tonality’; pitch is harmonically defunctionalized, and has the only function to support the polyrhythmical structure.

In pieces 5-7 I apply a new structure principle, which is based on motion pattern; the material is still chromatic, however the structure itself generates a kind of alternative ‘tonality’.

performed by Balint Barath, premiered on ‘Blurred Edges‘, festival of current music, Hamburg 2019.
