The Sleep of Reason, Section 2 Erik Nyström

The Sleep of Reason loans its title from a famous etching by Goya and has a very complex conceptual framework rooted in extramusical models from science, visual arts and literature. The piece is developed entirely from sinewaves and follows global mathematical system. Section 2 further develops the structures of Section 1 according to an encoding system inspired by information sciences, which clashes with contrasting forces to create highly disruptive gestural middle section of the composition.
