"Organic form itself is found, mathematically speaking, to be a function of time. We might call the form of an organism an event in space-time, and not merely a configuration in space." (Przemyslaw Prusinkiewicz, Aristid Lindenmayer: The Algorithmic Beauty of Plants)
Fern is a postscript to Kranz. It uses the same plant-like algorithm, of which I translated the first recursions (a slowly growing repetitive structure) to the piano.
Fern is dedicated to Dante Boon.
Fern by Anthony Fiumara is a relief. A gorgeously slumbering shadow play with piano chords that slowly fan out like leaves of a fern. Music that discovers and listens to itself, without spectacular tricks.
