Petr Wajsar : Cathedral in Progress

Premiere: Kampa Museum, April 14, 2008

I was inspired by the painting Cathedral by František Kupka. The distinctive movement of the painting from the central blue area towards its periphery served as my main inspirational source. “Blue chord” which opens the composition is reflected gradually in imaginary columns of the cathedral and breaks up in a number of sound elements before coming to a rest at the end of the piece in tranquility and serenity. This piece should have originally borne the same name as Kupka’s painting, but after some thought I decided to rename it as I have not yet fully exploited the material that makes up this work. The question whether this sketch will get its final shape still waits for an answer that only the future can tell.
