The name ‘JAD-A-DAJ’ comes from a combination of several compositional resources, hence the subtitle ‘eclectic dialogues for band’. The music responds to a pure work of analysis and more specifically to the search to exploit contrasts in the wide range of sounds provided by the wind instruments and percussion. After stopovers in the Neapolitan scale Mayor and trying to obtain quarters for chords using all notes of that scale, I got a chord in which the interval appears completely symmetrical: it is what some composers have called ‘closed cycle of fourths’.
JAD-A-DAJ received a 2nd prize at the Italian Concorso Internazionale di Composizione originale per banda 2009.
