Live performance added. About tonality. With this one I wanted to compose an 'easy to play' repetitive diatonic piece, without the complex harmonies of my other music. Yet, in some way it has the same tendencies of my other pieces. Look at the chant, with its pentatonic / myxolidian colours. These caracteristics are somewhat overruled by the other notes, making it an ambiguous aeolian / phrygian (in earlier versions the pedal ended on e, the chant still ends with a 'hanging' e minor chord). And the phrygian semitone step is also an important building block for the complex harmonies of my regular music. (Notice that the first statement of the chant (first bars) is actually incorrect, as if it is reshaped.) I'm not deliberately calculating this. It arises spontaneous and intuitive.
