- Fire and Phoenix
Fire and Phoenix depicts the mythical Phoenix bird being consumed by fire every five hundred years and then being reborn from the ashes. This picture is painted using strident dissonances, incessant rhythms and feverish energy. The opening Lydian mode shines brightly and sets the scene for the dramatic inferno. A hymn of faith evolves, and later returns triumphantly as the bird emerges victoriously from its own ashes.
