Zivkovic-Tensio-M OS - Product Information

Tensio as its title suggests, came about with the clash of two opposites, a tension which reaching an unbearable climax, explodes in a lighting  „short circuit". The opposites, as a basic principle of composing, are sometimes multilayered and simultaneous, but always consequential enough to represent at the same time linking element. The confrontation of intervals – of octave on the one side and of minor second on the other, or, let us say, of independent dynamics in each hand, especially in the tremolo in longer passages – leads to interesting and unusual sound effects. The confrontation is nonetheless marked primarily by the use of two composition techniques: freely composed parts on the one side and parts determined through interval technique on the other, as well as the syntheses of the two, make up the essence of this work.
