“The correspondence of small parts of a work of art to the slightly larger elements, and then their correspondence to the work as a whole, is one of the foundations of ancient, medieval and late medieval (late Gothic) architecture,” writes Sándor László in his DLA thesis. The characteristically rather simple basic elements, building blocks and audio stem cells defined by nature in László Sándor’s compositions become large-scale, complex sound-surfaces reflecting a vibrant diversity. Nor can it be coincidence how often László Sándor is inspired by natural phenomena (whether plants, birds or the folk song hiding in the density of variation), furthermore, the modellable core structures and codes of the created world revealing a huge diversity. As a composer, he is attracted simultaneously to fractal mathematics and medieval music, and is particularly excited when observing the similarly between 15th century polyphony and fractal mathematics. We get a taste of this intellectual curiosity and excitement from his composition DLA concert.
