Notes on this piece
dedicated to Anne-Sophie
Starting from a series of sonic ideas I made a drawing which I named "Static Vision of the Whole" which contained roughly the six episodes of the future piece: Universal Expansion, Comet, Ramifications, Mass Dredging, Whirlpool and Articulations. By and by, I started to ask myself about this design, where it came from, what it meant. Finally I started perceiving that what had emerged in my mind like a jigsaw puzzle and as mere abstract construction was in fact a vestige of real history of a remote past. A history of a former world unconsciously transmitted from generation to generation, a primitive mental image inherited from the earliest human ancestors, and supposed to be present in the collective unconscious. The physiological history of a universe, which through introspection had managed to come to the surface first in the way of sonic ideas, later as images and lastly as written music. In this piece the device is not conceived as an orchestra in its traditional functions but as an ensemble of soloists. There are almost no either signs or reference points tending to build columns in time, the bridges of memory are destroyed and the form gets unstable. Besides, the fragmentation of the instrumental discourse creates a constant timbre fluctuation that tends to generate a retroactive and continuous dissolution of the past. At each step, the piece is a path dissolving behind us. Arquetipo is an hommage to György Ligeti.
