Andre Carvalho |The Forlorn Mill

Inspired by some of the last scenes of Bosch’s “The Garden of Earthly Delights”, this movement depicts in a aggressiveness and nonetheless brutality manner, the migration of souls towards a mill where they will burn. The music clearly assumes this tension by using an ostinato bass figure and melodies that flow freely on top of it. The duality of time playing and rubato, dissonant intervals, uncertain keys, harsh textures, odd meters are some of the compositional tools to bring Belzebu to life!
