Description

Haris XANTHOUDAKIS: 1 ... 789

It is the setting to music (of the "setting in rhythm", more precisely) of two Greek texts talking about the French revolution and illustrating two opposite aspects of its impact in Greece, still occupied by the Turks, of the end of the seventeenth century: a "Patriarchal letter" (sort of circular of the Patriarch of Constantinople, to read in the Orthodox churches), condemning the French who "practiced the fraticide, killed their king and lost their faith in God" (in this order) and, on the other hand, a poem by Antonios Martelaos (1754-1818), congratulating the French for having shed blood for the freedom of the people. The first text is played at the beginning and end of the song (phonetically reversed and in a normal voice, respectively). The other forms slowly, parallel to a rhythmic accompaniment, of "disco" nature. This double reconstitution will be done in steps of proportion 1: 2: 3: ...: 7: 8: 9. A portion of this proportion, namely 1: 7: 8: 9, serves to generate an interval pattern (semitone, fifth, sixth minor, sixth major) that appears in both its sequential and simultaneous forms. Repetitive music, "disco" music, serial music, for a piece that wants to celebrate a bicentennial, its contradictory way, while keeping its distance.
