Tintinnabuli

Tintinnabuli

LEURN
This monument is a field of static peony blossoms which ensemble under the influence of classical composer, Arvo Pärt. When studying at the Tallinn Conservatory, it was said that "he just seemed to shake his sleeves and notes would fall out." This Estonian composer was heavily influenced by Gregorian Chant and is associated with the school of minimalism or specifically, holy minimalism. Each of these resonating 2-d flora have a special pitched bell that sounds when he has used his compositional style called 'tintinnabuli'. Two voices mirror one another; the first arpeggiates the tonic triad while the second moves along with the first in a diatonically stepwise motion. When they all ring together, a new 2-d peonies heads appear and thus they continue to mulitply. This field is located in his hometown of Paide. #Arvo_Pärt #cactus #classical #composer #conservatory #estonia #field #flower #gregorian_chant #head #minimalism #mirror #music #notes #paide #static #style #tintinnabuli #voices
