Penderecki's Dream

Share

Author Comments

Yeah, I don't expect to win with this piece as that's not the point. I just wanted to partake in the festivities, and when we have art submitted to Newgrounds like RobStanley's, why not spread the love to this dark corner of Newgrounds as well?

Although, it might not sound like it to you, this actually took me a long while to complete. Not as easy as it might seem to put organized chaos together. I followed a condensed musical form of Krzysztof Penderecki's "Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima." Considering that the "Threnody..." piece was the inspiration for the structure, Rob Stanley's artwork fits quite well with the burning atmosphere and the disfigured body. I'll leave any further interpretations to you.
And believe it or not, this music is not horrifying to me. One can become desensitized to dissonance after a time of listening to it. It merely becomes about the timbre as opposed to any kind of imagery or story. The artwork, however, is what I imagine most people would ascribe to with a piece such as this.

For any Penderecki fans, the title isn't meant to sound pretentious. I read a quote of him explaining that his "Threnody..." piece was at first imaginative in an abstract way. I also find that it's a composer's dream to be able to have access to such musical libraries as this.

Quite right. Another masterpiece. The use the "sticks" was particularly effective.
