Giacinto Scelsi - Piano Suite No. 9 Ttai

One of Giacinto Scelsi's middle works, his ninth piano suite, "Ttai" (1953), based on the mantra "Om", meaning "universe"; its form is comprised of both allusion to the repetitious aspects of Eastern chanting, and of his own extrapolation on the word's meaning.


Giacinto Scelsi (Italian pronunciation: [dʒaˈtʃinto ˈʃʃɛlsi]; 8 January 1905 – 9 August 1988) was an Italian composer who also wrote surrealist poetry in French.

He is best known for writing music based around only one pitch, altered in all manners through microtonal oscillations, harmonic allusions, and changes in timbre and dynamics, as paradigmatically exemplified in his revolutionary Quattro Pezzi su una nota sola ("Four Pieces on a single note") (1959). His musical output, which encompassed all Western classical genres except scenic music, remained largely undiscovered even within contemporary musical circles during most of his life.

Giacinto Maria Scelsi (La Spezia, 8 de enero de 1905 — Roma, 9 de agosto de 1988), conde de Ayala Valva, fue un compositor italiano y poeta en lengua francesa. Sus obras musicales más características se basan fundamentalmente en una sola nota, alterada por el tratamiento de sus armónicos y por medio de inflexiones microtonales, tímbricas, dinámicas, de volumen, de densidad, de tempo o de octava. Fue el precursor del espectralismo.
