EN: Not quite a strange mood. | Fl-Cl-Pno-Accord-Vla-Vc
This piece is so irrational and contrived that it is almost impossible to describe it in words. I have no doubt in my mind that it will become the cornerstone of Slovak serious music and many professional ensembles will choose it.
We know that if we immerse a body (it can also be a musical body, for that matter) into a liquid, it is miraculously subjected to an upward supernatural force. However, attempts to immerse oneself into this piece produce opposite results. There is no upward force. On contrary, it is trampled and suffocated by the weight of its own musical ideas. Non-diatonic parallel thirds, for instance. Ingenious invention. Rigid, yet logical. Or those anxious viola and cello registers, you can feel them down to your bones… And we must not forget the brilliant 19-beat rhythmic structure richly embellished with triplets, quintuplets and various phase shifts; no doubt it will satisfy musicians and all devotees of completely new music alike.
The video track is a bonus; I cannot believe we have deserved it.

SK: Nie celkom zvlastna nalada. | Fl-Cl-Pf-Ac-Vl-Vc
Tato skladba je tak iracionalne vykonstruovana, ze je velmi tazke ju nejako verbalne popisat. Nepochybujem vsak, ze sa stane uholnym kamenom slovenskej zavaznej hudby, po ktorom siahne nejedno profesionalne hudobne teleso.
Vie sa uz, ze ak sa ponori akekolvek teleso (v principe teda moze ist aj o hudobne) do kvapaliny, je akoby zazracne nadlahcovane nejakymi nadprirodzenymi silami. Pri pokusoch o ponorenie sa do tejto skladby su vsak vysledky celkom opacne. Tato skladba nie je nadlahcovana nicim. Naopak, je tlacena, gniavena, zasliapavana a dusena vahou vlastnych hudobnych myslienok. Napriklad nediatonicke paralelne tercie. Uzasny vynalez. Tvrde a logicke zaroven. Alebo tie stiesnene violove a violoncelove registre, ktore prenikaju az ku kostiam… No a nesmieme zabudnut na skvelu 19-dobu rytmicku strukturu bohato vysperkovanu triolami, kvintolami a roznymi fazovymi posunmi, ktora iste potesi nielen muzikantov, ale aj vsetkych priaznivcov uplne novej hudby.
Obrazova stopa je bonusom, ktory sme si azda ani nezasluzili.
