for orchestra – 2019 – 10′
«Many Worlds» explores the inner space of the orchestra as a musical medium itself. It paradoxically seeks dynamic continuity through the constant presence of imbalance, contrast, and non-sequitur. It draws inspiration from the work of Timothy Morton, and it is in a way related to a previous piece of mine, «The Mesh», despite the immense difference in the sonic surface of both pieces.
This piece was written for the Brussels Philharmonic in the framework of [‘tactus] Young Composers’ Forum 2019.
Recording of the workshops is available for private distribution. Don’t hesitate to contact me about it.
