Written and dedicated to my firend Sviatoslav Belonogov, Phase Space refers to the physico-mathematical concept of “phase space”, a mathematical construction that allows to represent the set of positions and moments of a system. Physically, every point in the phase space represents a possible state of the system. Musically, these points represent melodic-rhythmic motifs, different bow strokes, harmonics, etc. It is fractal space where self-similarity at different scales (the part in the whole and the whole in the part) allows me to create superstructures of great coherence.
