As in a mosaic, where the design of the complete picture results from the arrangement of small and differently coloured pieces of stone, this music is based on seven variously shaped musical units, each unit containing seven fragments deriving from a central note, G-sharp. The musical mosaic consists of the arrangement of such musical fragments in different and changeable orders determined by specific relations of performance categories given by the composer and selected by the harpsichordist. The performance of mosaic will therefore vary in structure and duration according to the configurations arranged by the harpsichordist.
