Zoltowski: Thang-ka
Composer: Maciej Zoltowski
Recording Date: Tue 28 Jun 1994
Thang-ka was written during the IV International Computer Music Workshops in Warsaw in 1994. All sound material was prepared from recordings – samples of two instruments: Indian esraj and Mongolian khuucir. Thang-ka is a name for Buddhist icon in tantric Buddhist tradition in Tibet. Each element of these paintings have a symbolical meaning, the material on which they are painted (usually silk), colours, proportions taken from a strict canon, even the act of unrolling and rolling back the icon (act of unfolding and folding the Universe). I tried to use the symbolical proportions and other symbols in this piece. 10’20”
