Personal Space 2

This is something sacramental - (maybe something like a weird 'Ave Verum'). It mixes the 'personal' aspects of musical language - particularly chromaticism, with harmonic regulating forces more akin to 'public' church music (thinking of Poulenc and plainsong). Simply by playing with these forces creates a different sort of difference. To make public communication of personal experience more probable we need to deepen personal insight through these differences - the religious (meta) dimension may be an important element to this. Music itself cannot be 'meta-music' (Silvestrov) - the 'meta' dimension must transcend appearances. (But in the sphere of art all communications are 'relevant'...)
