1994_0612 : Musical Anamorphosis No. 1 (in Am)




Play Track
(1991) Composer : Eric Scott

This piece was derived from my work “Parc de Sceaux” (which appears on day 031 “50 Minutes From Paris”). Arranged here for six pianos, the piece was also lengthened from the original 2:30 to a record 20:30 (scaling the tempo down to approximately 8 beats per minute).

“Musical Anamorphosis” refers to a musical perspective that, like an anamorphic tableau, has been skewed along one axis so that its original content can only be viewed by standing very close and peering along its axis of elongation. Anamorphic murals often contained clouded or hidden images and usually were created to deceive the individuals who commissioned them.
