The English word Hypha is derived from the Greek ”Huphe” meaning web or fabric, most commonly used in reference to the vegetative part (mycelium) of fungi. The name alludes to the structure of the composition as well as its compositional premises. Like the several, consecutive cells forming a large mass of branching, thread-like hyphae, I see my composition being made up of strictly exclusive ideas or cells forming a widening fabric.

I see my composition being made up of strictly exclusive ideas or cells forming a widening fabric.

”Web-likeness” doesn’t only describe the underlying structure of the music, but also its sonic surface. The work is in constant motion, ceaselessly expanding and developing.
