Time cannot be controlled in the real world, unfortunately; but in the world of music, an attempt can be made.
In Two Pieces for Piano Quintet, I played with melodies going at several unrelated speeds at once, held together by a common simple harmony. In the heat of composing this piece, my compositional charts were forgotten, and I did something that ended up with time seeming to go backward.
My influences in this are: The Art of Fugue, chorale preludes, Ligeti, Carter, isorhythmic motets, and Ockeghem’s mensuration canons. How far can it go, from Bach’s 2:4:8 into irrational relationships like 5:7:11? How much irrationality can we accommodate?
