Speaking of which - I'll add one of his song cycles here this week.

A promise is a promise. Here is the song cycle. I find quite fascinating the way it juxtaposes the extremely traditional (and sometimes a bit banal) poetry of Konstanty Ildefons Gałczyński with a completely avantgarde sound world...

Kazimierz Serocki - Serce nocy (Heart of the Night)
(texts by K.I. Galczynski)
performers: Jerzy Artysz, Szabolcs Esztényi

As usually, I'm giving you a sample (do compare this with Mykietyn's 3rd Shakespeare's Sonnet - it will be quite revealing!):

And here's the full file:

According to at least one author, it was Serocki who was the "inventor" of this notational innovation (nowadays, a notational standard):



Don't know where he used it for the first time and which year it was, so can't really properly check. It's a pretty credible author, though (Krzysztof Baculewski, the musicologist and composer).

Often referred to as "feathered beams" or "wedge beams".
