Undone MIDI


This composition concentrates on musical form. Having noticed that a large part of the music I was familiar with was created following the rule of thirds I wished to try something different. At a concert of Estonian Music Days in 2012, I heard Gérard Pape’s ‘Harmonies of form and time’ that was basically one big crescendo. I decided that my experiment was to be an inverted idea of Pape’s and after some time it took the form it is presented here. One big diminuendo was a suitable challenge and a rare phenomena. The title ‘Undone Midi’ is an anagram of ‘diminuendo’ and ‘MIDI’ also expresses the mechanical nature of the composition.
