Prog. notes: Beyond the eternal chaos was composed at the University of music and performing arts Graz in Austria in 2014. This piece explores possible transformations of musical elements by applying interpolation algorithms. Several transformative behaviors are seen at several levels of the piece such as changes of a prominence between the flute and electronics dependent on sections, transition between noise and tone in a phrase, morphology from a phrase to another phrase, and so on.
The composition is divided into three sections. The first section renders a convergent process of three musical elements characterized by waving motions between tone and noise, sustained tones with portamento and a melody outlined by tongue rams as well as lip slaps, respectively. The second section depicts a scene that electronics dominate prominently the instrument. The third section draws a transformative development from a melody to an ascending passage. At the end, the piece finishes as if disappearing into chaos by echoes. All sections are successively performed.
