Notes on this piece
Study No. 1 from Studies in Green Textures

Studies in Green Textures
The characteristic of the piano that has always interested me and which represents, in my opinion, its quintessence, is its ability to produce complex and elusive textures. This aspect of piano writing seems to me to still contain a part of mystery and is what spontaneously awakens in me the strongest and richest synaesthetic sensations. The Studies in Green Textures explore some of these dense textures of color-sounds, using multiple idiomatic piano techniques.

Another aspect of textures that fascinates me and that I have taken into consideration is the game with the perception of the interpreter and the listener. The texture is made up of sounds that are moving too fast to be able to follow their individual paths. Perception is necessarily global. But the listener, and the interpreter, can constantly filter the moving sound stream and extract some fragments or briefly chase its elusive details. Segments of phrases fleetingly catch the attention and then plunge back into the flow, disappearing to immediately let other elements appear.

This continuous movement from the whole to the details and vice versa, this constant navigating within the texture, give rise to the illusion of multiple simultaneous sound layers.

The first study, Metatextures, is like an expanded fleeting moment in which several unseizable fragments of memories fade and blend into one another in a constant yellow-green texture. The interpreter should let this variegated and flexible texture breathe, making it wave lightly through subtle dynamic and agogic variations.
