quem lex subjungat

19’ | overtone singer, electronics, violin, cello, detuned piano

In the 1970’s, Karlheinz Stockhausen proclaimed serialism the ultimate egalitarian, democratic system. But ultimately, it was a system trying to control what had already spiralled out of control. […] quem lex subjungat equals this to the way legislative structures try to control a very complex, globalized world.

The comfort of the system at the beginning, the pandiatonic, serially organized world of the classical piano trio, is soon intruded by the disharmonizing of the overtone singer backed by electronics, and the mutual strife for adaptation derails the system into mayhem.
