LUDE (2018) ca. 6 min

Programme Notes:
Lude, composed in 2018 for prepared piano and with a duration of about six minutes, is a self-similar musical object. Its title signifies a composition that is neither introductory, intermediary, nor conclusory, in contrast to preludes, interludes, and postludes, respectively. By the fractal magnification of its material as well as of the piano preparation that it requires, this work acts as a mise en abyme of its own body. It was premiered 12 Mar. 2019 in Brussels, BE by Andreas Mantzaris.
