FISH IN AN AQUARIUM - ZORAN NOVAČIĆ (CROATIA)
"Fish in an Aquarium" was the first piece composed for the Infinity Project on September 2017.
The piece illustrates the adventures of small fish in an aquarium. Carefully selected harmony “of the deep”, changes of registers, and varied dynamic give the piece its form, as well as lightness and positive disposition. Various configurations of articulation (especially in the highest register, most convenient for such practice) help to improve the combination of natural and circular breathing.
