about

The initial idea behind Imagined Archipelagos was to write a series of short pieces for violin and piano each inspired by a particular aspect of the Mayan culture. The first movement written was originally titled Tzolkin, after one of the Mayan calendars that consists of 13 months of 20 days each. Different musical phrases consisting of 13 and 20 notes unfolded at different rates between the violin and the piano. The next movement became a depiction of the Mayan goddess Ix Chel, one of the few and most important female deities in their pantheon. -Reinaldo Moya
