Notes on this piece

Fake-polyphony was composed in 2009 for chamber ensemble with conductor following a workshop with the Ensemble InterContamporain where I coud try sections of the piece with the members of the Ensemble.
I am often blamed with writing music that lacks the polyphony. This is not primarily valid for the weaving method of the individual voices but more the overall multidimensional musical thinking. One of the main goals of composing Fake-polyphony was the intention to solve this problem and create a music material in which the polyphonic thinking of the parts is obvious. However, while composing the piece I realized that it was fake polyphonic, so the voices are not basically complementary but rather pass each other. Therefore I kept composing with emphasizing the individuality and independence of the instruments.
In the struggle of the real and the fake polyphony I managed to compose the music that was still my own one. It could happen by finding the solutions for the instruments as they cross each others’ path, so they make inseparable connections.
In this piece the musicians and the conductor try to impress each other which only succeded occasionally. Their meeting points become audible only accidentally and unintentionally.
