Disintegration for piano and electronics is inspired by one of a Dali’s surrealistic painting “Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory.”
The electronic part is generated from the Granular Cloud Generator. First, the piano part begins with the tone C while blending with several quasi-hitting sound of the on-going tape part. Soon, some quasi-bell sounds emerge and this contrasts the other musical texture in the piece. After that, a sound mass gradually fades in and this builds the music up to the first climax, the piano part is full of chromatic angular musical gestures. After the sound mass fades out, a repeated static centric pitch emerges and this gives more a sense of musical stability of the piece and the following musical texture tends to become sparser and be in a rather lower density and higher register when the quasi-bell sounds merge with the several gong sounds. Upon passing through this contrasting section, the second climax fades in and after reaching the loudest part, the music gradually fades out. Some of the sounds at the beginning of the piece recur while the music ends quietly and mysteriously just like the sound fades away in a long distance. In the piece, set-class the chromatic half-step dominates and this simple dyad develops profusely throughout the piece in various ways.
