Notes on this piece
L’Horizon absolu

L’Horizon absolu has four sections:

I.   Profondissima quiete
II.  Scorrere
III. Scaturire
IV.  Unire

Profondissima quiete (“Profound quiet”) is based on permanence. An identical substance manifests itself without transformations. Identical laws rule time – segmented into four sections – and (metaphorical) pitch space – delimited by two extreme sounds. Motionless lines streak this time and space expressing equivalent proportions in both. A founding number presides over the generation of each of the four subsections.

Scorrere (“Flowing”) is spanned by an unseizable dynamis, sotto voce. Time flows differently for each of the four instruments. The whole Horizon absolu is contained in this section: an apparition of totality – compressed – before it fully actualises.

Scaturire (“Springing out”): jets of sound matter spring out within a very short lapse of time: four subsections quickly succeed one another, evoking – in a reduced form – the proportions of the Profondissima quiete section. The four subsections do not unfold in a linear way: they are submitted to several forms of redundancy and rereading.

Unire (“Uniting”): what was successive becomes simultaneous. The four subsections of Profondissima quiete – each with its own tempo – are reunited and unified in a synthesis.
