Traite De Rythme; De Couleur Et D'ornithologie Tome 1 by : Olivier Messiaen
“Part of the Treatise on rhythm; colour and ornithology written in French by Olivier Messiaen; this volume is the first of the 7 tomes. This volume focuses on time; rhythms; Greek metrics; Hindu Rhythms and an analysis of 39 choirs of 'Spring' by Claude Le Jeune. This treatise depicts the full theory behind Messiaen s compositions and how he composed the music; including his conception of rhythms; his incorporation of birdsong and his relation to sound and colours. While most of the composers struggle to explain their composition; Messiaen has managed to write a Treatise in 7 volumes to explain all the important aspects of his work. Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) was a French organist and composer passionate about Ornithology and one of the most important composer of his century. Inspired by Japanese music; he had a very special way of composing and his work can be identified by its complexity; its diatonic aspect; its harmony with limited transposition; its colour and its additive rhythms. He composed many works related to ornithology and birdsong; including the 'Bird Catalogue' in 7 volumes.”
