Notes on this piece
Torrent of Images – A Memoriam is a piece in tribute to the victims of the tragedy in Bali when terrorists bombed the holiday resort in Kuta, Bali on 12 October 2002. The piece will eventually consist of three sections. This is the first of the three sections, called Irrational. This piece is constructed using the scale given, but the scale is transposed, permutated and dislocated. In this first movement, the piece consists of 12 small sections (patterns) in which the scale is distributed. There is also a hidden structure: the piece is built around a series of 5 numbers. Erratic, randomness and displacement of notes are characteristic, associated with the word irrational As the title suggests, metaphorically, it is like a torrent of images flooding one’s mind after such a tragedy that affected everyone. The piece irrationally goes from an obvious Balinese pentatonic scale and to more obscure suspended clusters when the scale is played a doubling shadow and the sustaining pedal. The images sometimes keep coming back, reflecting the Balinese mode (memories of Bali) until at the end it becomes more intense and eventually the tension is released, with a loud chord played in the lower register. This gesture is complemented by a solemn, repeated octave which ends the section. The gesture (repeated octaves) is symbolically (and perhaps metaphorically), a thoughtful reflection, meditative and mourning gesture for the tragedy and the lost one. Tazul Izan Tajuddin
