Anastasia Vediakova

About the piece:
The idea of the String Sextet for two violins, two violas and two cellos is based on the unusual and non-classical approach to the musical genre of chamber ensemble. Incomparably greater number of musical works created for string Quartet, but great examples of Brahms, Tchaikovski show that composer thought in this direction individually from intimacy or symphonically. In modern music examples are rare, and, for example, Xenakis, architect and composer, construction of music in his String sextet static, expresses only one emotion.

In the search of ideas, defining the aesthetic property of the works of the twenty-first century, I have analyzed the large number of scientific and non-scientific factors related to the number "6" (the number of performers in this instrumental composition). I got acquainted with a few works about the multidimensionality of space-time). According to the the received me information about the 6-dimensional space-time, I've made a table of ratios of concepts and notions, such as time (and its modifications), space (and its volume) and others, in their relative to the means of musical expression, such as altitude of sound, intervals and their ratio-for example, the interval of quint is the image of Universe, which changes with t-, specific techniques of playing string instrument.

Together the concept of the subjective perception of scientific knowledge about the Universe, which at first is represented by a point, and, in the process of development -expands to infinity, It's like a view from Space to Space. As a contrasting element to this "theoretical composition" (which, however, is not internally static), I added "solo of stars" -three episodes, which have the lyric, "human" character (quasi subjective view of a man from Earth to outer Space). This episode of the first plays Cello ("neighbors" stars), then Viola(the "long" stars), and in the final -Violin in the high register at the edge of hearing ("very distant" stars, invisible to the human eye and the telescope). Thus, in the process of work on composing, I have made an attempt to unite the achievements of scientific thought and subjectivity of art; in addition, and based on this, also i trying to visualize through the means of musical expression of the evolution of the model of the Universe.
