Tezcatlipocas (2008)

Fünf Miniaturen über Zerstörung und Entstehung der Welten

Besetzung: Bassklarinette, Violoncello, Klavier
Dauer: 6’
UA: 15.02.2009, Teatro Principal, Puebla, Mexiko

The Tezcatlipocas are the first five gods in Aztec mythology, but at the same time each of them represents a world as well as a sun. The worlds were created and every time completely extinguished, until our current world was born. In the piece I also worked with this effect of tabula rasa. It is based on five very different, linear developments, chopped in pieces and put again together, losing the linearity of the timeline.

Die Komposition ist ein Auftragswerk von Platypus – Verein für Neue Musik.
