Notes on this piece
This piece is inspired both by Paul Gaugin's paintings and many Japanese paintings, including the famous raku-chu/raku-gai works, the genji-monigatari e-maki, and works by Sotatsu. Vibrating areas on a golden background, sometimes partly covered in golden clouds, have a strong energy, without forcing the observer into special thoughts or emotions. The golden background gives the colours an intensive illumination. There is no perspective to lead us somewhere, the flat background dematerializes itself towards the unseen space behind. This kind of Japanese paintings is described in art catalogues as „ink, colours and gold on paper“, which became the title of this piece. The technique of overlaying two layers of mixed colours was used to create strong deep colours as in Gaugin's paintings. These two layers are represented by the group clarinet/piano and the group flute/violoncello/percussion, which more or less simultaneously play the same music but in a different realisation. The listener can choose which group he concentrates on, or perhaps he concentrates on the golden background/foreground by the violins, or goes to the invisible/inaudible space behind the music. (Peter Gahn)
