Motions, Stases

The main idea ofMotions, Stases is to manipulate the perception of the listener through exploration of two musical conditions, static state with minimal amount of motion and active one that is created as a very directional musical process. Motions, Stases for piano and large ensemble was commissioned by the 2012 Brand New Music Festival and was composed for Malgorzata Walentynowicz and Orkiestra Muzyki Nowej conducted by Szymon Bywalec. The piece is dedicated to my wife Allison Ogden.
