Rubik's Cube

October 18, 2010 8:31 PM

Piano experiment gone horribly wrong.

Six four-bar lines repeated until, one at a time, they're all playing. My music notation software allows notes to be printed in color, so of course, each line is a different color, like a face of Rubik's cube. It needs to be twice as long, with each part dropping out until only the last line remains. Could the analogy to Rubik's Cube be extended further by randomizing individual bars or shifting the key? Extending the number of measures per color to 9? Despite the vertically dense score, the "solved" rendition ought to be pleasant and symmetrical. For now, it certainly fits the bill of horrific, Frankensteinian, Halloween music.

I enjoyed it! It had this visceral impact like that of YouTube videos of people crashing into things.
