A collection of melodies.
[as a constellation of stars
[in the direction of a tree
[in celebration of a life
The melody is a thing of memory. It suspends time. A point and a sequence of points, it is singular and multiple, itself a whole that is still merely a part cut from the virtual fabric of sound. The melodies here serve as a space of potential, actualized through the process of its realization - filtered by it, emerging from it, becoming through it. It is a folded entity, multifaceted, like crystal. Heard and unheard at every turn, with each moment, it listens in all temporal directions, expanding and contracting like breath. Here, the threshold at which melody crystallizes as harmony, and harmony unfolds as melody.
To the memory of Moshe Matias (1925-2020).
