Dronescape 12: The Unbearable Formlessness of Chaos is sixteenth in the series of Dronescape albums created by composer Oscar van Dillen using the latest technology.
The work on this album was conceived of, composed, created, recorded, post-produced and mastered from
October 2023 – January 2024.
The inspiration for this work on the one hand came from a fascination with how to compose really long works; this single movement 6-hour work is the next step in duration after the earlier four part 4-hour long Dronescape 8: The Four Pillars of Reason. The inspiration on the other hand came from the urgency felt to compose a work on chaos as a sign of our times: today there are increasingly forces at work and coming to the forefront of our attention, that are contributing more and more chaotic elements to what seemed to use to be a reasonably ordered human world, at least since World War II. One does not need to be labeled as woke to know at least some of these agents and forces, both natural and human, by name.
The Unbearable Formlessness of Chaos attempts to reflect states and structures within chaos and offer the listener an attempt at personal orientation within, but it contains no manual, no route map. At its inception lies the Orpheus Institute 2005 book Cahier M – morphology of the electric sound by Dutch composer Dick Raaijmakers, in which he discusses some of Piet Mondrian’s Neo-Plasticist ideas on music as published in De Stijl 1921 – 1922 (issues 4 and 5).
