Steffen Schorn über sein piano piece „The Mad Code“:

„The piece rushes through a series of paradox emotional episodes: Fury, pride, innocent joy, sudden flashes of thoughts, crystal clear inner silence…

Inspired by a concert of Beethoven in Vienna after a several fruitful year, that is said to be a „desaster“ because of „mammoth“ programming – L.v. Beethoven had put all his new compositions in one orchestral concert preceded by his boundless improvisations on the piano – I have tried to put an extremely condensed collection of structured material of compositional ideas in a very short piece… and failed…

The 13+2 chords at the beginning represent the complementary pentatonics of 13 different non-symmetrical master scales (9-tone-modes) in a position of self-similar resonance, opposed to pure chords of C major 7, which appear horizontally and vertically in different transpositions throughout the piece.. tactile rhythmic percussion patterns… fast rotating harmo-melodic fields…“
