         Yours the grace that lights my temple’s light,
         and yours the consecrated fire grown,
         as patiently, at first, beneath the latticed ice,
         emerges earth’s first measure of its own.
         Here the green wrought bough’s reflected will,
         its understanding and its being unknown,
         holds that without which nothing can be stilled
         before love which is but God’s to know.
         But stays the course she does of winter come,
         and contemplates in dark the body tended;
         and having contemplated thus as one,
         the petalled sun on yellow face illumined,
         does she burst, at last, upon th’ eternal rush
         of all things risen and good in us.
                       —Darcy Blahut

‘Superstring Theory’ for two pianos (eBook-music)

In Publishings on May 3, 2020 at 10:36 am


Two contrasting motifs develop together, and through tension and fusion grow in energy, developing into great waves.
Superstring theory is an attempt to explain all of the particles and fundamental forces of nature in one theory by modeling them as vibrations of tiny supersymmetric strings (Wikipedia).
This piece premiered by South Korean pianists in a concert of “The 46th Pan Music Festival 2018” in Seoul.
Afterwords, it premiered in Japan in “The 40th Edogawa City Music Festival”.

This eBook is now available (complete audio file of live recording attached).
