Everything is text. But text comprehension and its impact are the result of many different wavelengths and signals passing by. In this piece, Entrance to the Universe, composer Platons Buravickis plays with electrical signals. The piece is created for an uncommon trio of instruments – the piano, the modular synthesizer, and computer electronics. The piece speaks to nature of communication, how it occurs by passing signals and waves from one being to another, regardless of if they are human, natural, a piano, electronic, or otherwise. They meet in between the generator and the observer, oscillate and modulate, and gain characteristics, rhythm, and melody of their own.

Platons Buravickis is a contemporary classical composer, pianist and improviser. Following his studies under the direction of Pēteris Vasks, he received a master’s degree in composition from the Jāzeps Vītols Latvian Academy of Music under professor Selga Mence.
Platons has devoted himself to both traditional areas like symphonic and chamber music, as well as electro-acoustic music. This entails composition of both musique concrète as well as works based on the synthesis of sounds from virtual instruments and modular algorithms.
He has recently composed a number of works, including “Injector. Впрыск. Sprausla” composed specially for the Berlin philharmonic Sharoun Ensemble, as well as “Techno Opera” in collaboration with librettist Leo Līcis, which reflects Platons’s idea about how music will unite the world. However, Platons’s self-described most significant work of late is “Aesthetics of Disassembly,” which highlights the beauty of audacity and destruction.
