It is a work for solo piano or for piano four hands, and features all manner of compelling aphorisms.

As well, the many small movements represent an informal musical diary of what concerned the composer at the time. Often, these pieces will feature dedications.

The styles, and in some cases works, of StravinskyWolff, Domenico Scarlattiand others have become indentured in the project. Pianoo relationships are also represented. This project is not likely to end before the end of the composer’s career, even though his writer’s block had long since corrected itself.


The composer’s worldview becomes more laid out for his audience as the project grows. It is not common for an artist to be able to generate this sort of journal, which not only specifies his concern of the day, but also works with it until a solution or an illumination piani the issue is at hand. Then it becomes art.

Though some comparable experiments exist in literature, this musical journey is specific to working with and demonstrating ideas through the piano only. Its intimacy exists in the language of the composer, making it a pure portrait of the motions of the artist’s imagination. Readers will take pleasure in becoming acquainted with this material; there is no escaping it, if the avant-garde of the twentieth century is of any interest. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript.
