Elements 19: Kalium is the twenty-second album in this series of music on the Elements, a very large work in progress consisting of electronically/digitally created architectural music compositions by Oscar van Dillen.
The cover art in the Elements series consists of color inverted pencil drawings made by the composer.
A word of warning: after careful listening, the world around you may not sound the same any longer.
The work on this album was created, composed, recorded, and produced June-August 2023. All works, cover art and booklet of this album were created by Oscar van Dillen.
Element 19 is found in the 4th period of Group 1 in the periodic system, the group containing all alkali metals (excepting Hydrogen, element 1, which although residing in the same group is very different and can be seen as an element in a category of its own). Its symbol derived from the Latin Kalium, its common name in English is Potassium, named after potash. It is the 7th most abundant element on earth, present in plants, vegetables, and fruits. So much so that vegetarians have a higher intake of it that meat eaters do. In animals, which of course includes us, the human animals, it is a crucial element to make the nerve system work. Without it, there is no reactiveness in animals; no motion, no awareness, no brain, no science, no art.
