This is “Sextant”, by Eidon ( Music and pictures by and © Eidon — All rights reserved.

“Sextant” is an original composition for piano, double bass, timpani, and percussions. I wrote it on June 23 and 24, 2021.

The essence of the piece is given by the ostinato on bass, coupled with a reassembling of piano “blocks” of a partitioned leading theme, which cyclically repeats itself.

Such a series of 7/8 music quantums is followed by a second theme, in 6/8. Said theme is first played by piano and percussions; then, again, slightly variated, by contrabass, piano, and percussions.

Then, the first theme enters again, with a new reassembling, which then drives the track to its conclusion.

“Sextant” is available on Bandcamp, here.

A video is available on youtube:

The video features pictures that I took at the St. Hubert's Galleries in Brussels and at the Hortus Botanicus Lovaniensis (the Botanical Garden of Leuven), Belgium.

If you like this music, and if you would like to support me, then follow me on Bandcamp or download my compositions from it.

Best, Eidon.
