Multiversum

Multiversum

for organ, hammond organ and orchestra


  • Instrumentation: organ, hammond organ and orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

Description
Since Yuri Gagarin’s journey into space in 1961, technological advancements have caused us to marvel at the miracle of the cosmos. Research like Witten’s theory of the eleven dimensions and string theory has astounded us with its speculation on the nature of outer space, and has spurred me on in my compositional fantasy. My work consists of three movements: Expansion, Multiversum and Time and Space. It surrounds the audience with sound from all sides. The concert organ is played at the front of the hall and, although also played onstage, the rotating tone of the Hammond organ will sound from the back. The orchestral seating will reinforce the spatial impression of a tonal universe with the strings on the left, the woodwinds on the right and brass and percussion dispersed across the entire width of the stage. Peter Eötvös
