A Green Eternity not Wonders
With text from the poem Arte Poetica by Jorge Luis Borges, this piece came as a response to the question of simplicity in art paraphrased by simplicity of means. Constructed over 3 notes and the phenomena of "beatings", A green Eternity not Wonders is a reflexion on horizontal harmony and economy of sonic material
(…) Cuentan que Ulises, harto de prodigios,
lloró de amor al divisar su Itaca
verde y humilde. El arte es esa Itaca
de verde eternidad, no de prodigios.
(…) They say Ulysses, wearied of wonders,
wept with love on seeing Ithaca,
humble and green. Art is that Ithaca,
a green eternity, not wonders.
