    commissioned by Paul Cemini
    For Johannes Kepler the heavenly motions were nothing but a continuous song for several voices, perceived not by the ear, but by the intellect. He found that the angular velocities of planets closely correspond to musical intervals. When he compared the extremes for combined pairs of planets, the results yielded the intervals of a complete scale.
    Commissioned by Paul Cemini to incorporate the ideas of Kepler’s outstanding mind into a piece of music I was intrigued by the obsessiveness with which Kepler pursued the force of his vision even in the face of repeated failures and personal tragedies. Thus rather than his musical theories I will put Kepler’s restless quest for the discovery of the divine plan of creation into the focus of my musical work.
    The piece will come into being in close collaboration with lutenist Warner Iversen. He will immerse himslef in the proportions, relations and vibrationary patterns of the single intervals, unearthing ttheir complexities and particularities. His performance will resemble the journey through an acoustic universe full of meaning, strange correspondences and grand harmonies.
