György Ligeti: Aventures#
Hanns Eisler chose to write in a clear major-minor tonality based on his
political beliefs, Gyoergy Ligeti (1923 Diciosanmartin/Romania) had
just escaped from that political domination. Ligeti integrated the
newest, fantastic artificial language consisting of various sounds into
his avantgarde tonal spectrum. The Aventures (Adventures),
mimodramas, dramatize emotional variations of actual experience and
form, in part, the acoustic elements in Kubrick's film 2001.
Pre-formed rhythms or melodies no longer decide the structure; the
concept of a sound-continuum, here (Example) determined by types of
communication, which bring Ligeti (Illustration) close to sound-poems,
dominates. (M. Saary)
