Perspectivae sintagma I: an analysis

Giordano Ferrari

This analysis of Perspectivae sintagma I (1997), based on the composer’s notes, explains the profound relationship between the score and its musical or extra musical sources. The analysis also demonstrates the roles played by these sources in the construction of the work: not by searching for a unity of material developed according to a series of principals (as practiced by serial music), but through the desire to bring together elements belonging to different fields, fields which are apparently unconnected. All this is made concrete using an intellectual procedure such as the canon, interpreted as a relationship between two factors, two values or two numerical series.
