There are some notes which I wrote down on the program book during Warsaw Autumn music festival, and those concepts are helpful to my composition.
☆ To create some UNEXPECTED SOUNDS (timbre and effect) rather than merely using strange ones makes the music more splendid.
☆ FIGURE DIVERSITY decides the characteristic shape of music that makes structural impression.
☆ Regardless of musical form, GOOD RELATIONSHIP between instruments and their timbre is very basic to chamber music.
☆ NEVER WASTE ANY SOUND in the work but using everything more properly and efficiently that makes the music more acoustic.
☆ Music which includes SOME MOMENTS MAKING ONE CONTEMPLATE is more impressive to the audience.
☆ Regardless of timbre, rhythm, and figure, DYNAMIC VARIETY crucially decides the motion in music even if the pitch and harmonic pace are stable.
☆ Music should have AT LEAST THREE DIFFERENT LEVELS of both timbral and acoustic space, and stop before one fall asleep if it remains a period of calm.
☆ The direction of accumulation and dissipation inside music can be constructed with VARIOUS AND DELICATE PHRASES.
☆ A composer should blend all the elements into ARTIFICIALLY ACOUSTIC NATURE, especially when tending to incorporate very different materials in one work.
☆ Good music can’t be created as an emotional atmosphere without considering INNER RELATIONSHIP AND MOTION between both the instruments and the sounds.
☆ To make audiences BOTH ENJOY EVERY ACOUSTIC MOMENT AND FOLLOW THE CONTEXT inside music itself keeps deeper impression.
☆ To FIND OUT AND DEVELOP POSSIBLE VARIETY among the limited materials as much as well can turn the music into different characters and appearances in certain unity.
☆ PROPER ORCHESTRATION with the best acoustic effects helps music to have MORE POTENTIALITY OF EXPRESSION AND TENSION, which is an important core of a large-scale work.
☆ To compose by the ears means to make one’s acoustic experience filled with continuously unexpected elements that become INNER REMEMBRANCE and reconstruct their logic.
☆ Besides of hierarchical structures inside music, a composer should give the work CERTAINLY SPECIFIC CHARACTER that can be recognized as a unique, especially when writing for a common group of instruments.
☆ THE POSITION OF THE INSTRUMENT with the best resonance will enhance the actual effect of the layers in music that strongly influences a composer’s writing.
☆ GOOD MUTUAL RELATIONSHIP between instruments in chamber music benefits acoustic effects of all, especially when employing specific techniques.
☆ A SOUND CASUALLY FOLLOWED BY ANOTHER can delicately bring the texture of music into different layers.
☆ PROPERLY REPEATING some materials can deepen one’s impression of music, but they should be casually applied in the time space that ALWAYS KEEPS ONE’S EXPECTATION AND ATTRACTION.
