This is the third and final act of Ambigua. Act III is Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night), Op. 4 (1899), a string sextet in one movement. Inspired by a poem by Richard Demhel, Schoenberg composed it in three weeks, at the age of 25. It is a perfect showcase of his uncanny skills in classic harmony. Clearly rooted in D minor, it often ventures far from this home key, using extreme chromaticism, undermining both conventional harmony and metric boundaries, signalling the new era that Schoenberg pioneered a few years later: the 12-tone, serial music system. Ambigua invites diversity, exploration, free spirit and an open ear. It embraces all music that is original in shape and content, as the human imprint in a universal vibe we still struggle to grasp, a breath of “luft von anderem planeten”

Béla Bartók is one of the most forceful and influential musical personalities of the 20th century, whose music was so widely abused and misunderstood in their own lifetime. He fused and completely assimilated seemingly conflicting musical elements - the classical masters, contemporaries like Debussy and folk songs. Especially the polychromatic orchestral textures of Richard Strauss had an immediate effect upon Bartók's instrumental sense, evidenced in masterpieces such as Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celesta (commissioned by the conductor Paul Sacher to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Kammerorchester Basel and written in 1936.) It perfectly reflects the composer's style, as it had evolved through several stages into one of the most distinctive and influential musical idioms: Ingenious application of asymmetrical, sometimes driving, often savage, rhythmic propulsion and ear-tweaking sonorities, exploitation and refinement of devices like palindromes, arches, and proportions based on the "golden ratio." This is my rendition of Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celesta using synthesizers, as I believe their sound lends itself beautifully to the harsh and rough, out-of-this-world but still so earthly, dissonant passages of Bartók's masterpiece, so ahead of its time.

Electron Stories with Cats is an electronic suite in nine parts based on the classical culture (harmonies, progressions, structure etc) of the 20th century modernism with an intense geometric character and mathematical evolvement. Twelve-tone serialism, Bartokesque pentatonics and lush tonal melodies meet chilled soundscaping and abstract cinematic dissonances in an exploration of classical form and modern color.

Inspired by the poem L'après-midi d'un faune by Stéphane Mallarmé, it later provided the basis for the ballet Afternoon of a Faun, choreographed by Vaslav Nijinsky. One of Debussy's most famous works, it is considered a turning point in the history of music; I tried to bring out the ambiguous harmonic qualities of this masterpiece. No solid ground, no certainty, an arcadian and ideal place… no sense of orientation, no presumptions. Just a hazy, floating soundscape, underpinned by washes of harps and eerie flute breezes...

The Gymnopédies are regarded as an important precursor to modern ambient music — gentle yet somewhat eccentric pieces which, when composed, defied the classical tradition. The melodies use deliberate, but mild, dissonances against the harmony, producing a piquant, melancholy effect. I adapted these three short pieces focusing on what they already were: ambient and relaxing, hypnotic, still harmonically ambiguous, a prophetic vision of music to come.

The adagietto from his 5th symphony is said to represent Mahler's love song to Alma. According to a letter she wrote to Willem Mengelberg, the composer left a small poem: "How much I love you, you my sun, I cannot tell you that with words. I can only lament to you my longing and love"... Such a serene and emotional piece, still there are moments that hung in the air, frozen for eternity, like big question marks… Understanding Mahler and his ambiguous characteristics, I approached this piece in a stop-motion way, very ambient, with emphasis on its melodic nature.
