Notes

  • Program notes: 

    “I value everything that influences our ability to consciously embrace the present moment, and keenly observe that which surrounds us: the various facets of silence and then noise - as well as microscopic events in sounds - and the musical process because, paradoxically, it seems that the more the composition process is tied to the music itself and musical reality, the more it allows the music to mirror the surrounding existence and its patterns through moments of insight. To become a tree observes daily life at the backdrop of technological singularity and biotic crisis. Our environment is constantly being monitored and even recreated, and yet it is more difficult than ever to maintain the balance of the ecosystem based on its simplest foundations. Data driven industries and technological singularity (a threat of uncontrollable processes in the technological sphere) cause the more profound reality-driven insights – i.e. our inherent ability to form a decision by integrating various levels of intelligence that involve intuition, inspiration and differentiation capacity – to shift from the centre of focus.”
