world is probably made of roses, so-ons and ashes

for viola solo

world is probably made of roses, so-ons and ashes is a piece for viola solo that uses as a model a compressed version of the process of memory creation, in a way this process is portrayed in certain historical sources. It is a kind of devastating attempt to recall something in its original form while in effect creating something completely new. Through different levels of transformation, the initial part of the piece is firstly being distorted so to create a sort of “filtered reality” and eventually reorganized having as a result an altered image of the initial event. The part of reorganization and connection of elements is left to the performers creativity in order to achieve with every performance an individual, remoulded image or a personal memory of the initial part of the piece.
