Program note

Moto immoto (motion in the motionless) was composed in 2009 as an electroacustic piece, created with samples from Vienna Symphonic Library as a virtual piece for symphonic orchestra. The scoring and rearrangement for live symphonic orchestra was written in 2010. A simple pattern of 6 major thirds represents all the harmonics in the piece. It counts in 5/4 and are slowly moving through all the keys forming an irreversible feeling of lost times and sorrow. Insistent figures across the rhythm of the chords in the strings and especially in the brass creates a counterpoint to the slow music, but it really doesn't change the somehow transcendental feeling of the work.

A musical technique where different layers of music in individual tempos, metric and musical style are combined in a simple pattern of chords, which slowly modulate through all the keys in a newer ending sequence, creating a music with no or very few dissonances.
