“1, 1, 1, 2, 3”, Oleksiy Koval, 2012

M 1/25

R [*1,1,1,2,3]

E  |a,b,c,d,…| ≈

P
The rhythmical motive:

Element a starts with a solo using the rhythmical motive 1,1,1,2,3.
Then element a paints the same rhythmical motive, but in cooperation with the following two elements (b,c).
Element b has its solo and so on …

[*a,a,a,aa,aaa]
[*a,a,a,ab,abc]

a makes four times a mark of the unit size 1
b chooses one of the four and makes a new unit of the size 2 by adding its mark in the unit size 1
a makes another mark of the unit size 1
b chooses again one of the four and makes a new unit of the size 2 by adding its mark in the unit size 1
c chooses one of the two units of the size 2 and makes one new unit of the size 3 by adding its mark in
the unit size 1

[*b,b,b,bb,bbb]
[*b,b,b,bc,bcd]
[*c,c,c,cc,ccc]
[*c,c,c,cd,cde]
[*d,d,d,dd,ddd]
[*d,d,d,de,def]

The surface:

Start in area 1 or 5 and then move to the next area, either left to right, right to left or top to bottom until the row is completed.
The element wich comes next decides where to continue:
If you move horizontally it can be the area on the left or right border of the following row
or if you move vertically it can be the area on the top or bottom border of the following row.
This decision can be made for each row.

M meter
R rhythmical motive
E element
P procedure

* hits the meter
|| order fixed
[] within the same area
size of the unit is corresponding for all elements

The idea behind this composition is to have a simple, repetitive structure, which allows for example to vary in speed while painting.


On this page I publish the compositions, which have been written using “The Beautiful Formula Language“. Please, feel free to send me your comment or any kind of question.
