Original Track: "Karma" from "Tales of the Abyss"

This piece was a special request of a friend and fellow medical student named Tenken.

Just as "Karma" speaks of two glass spheres, I made two versions of this piece based on a concept in optics known as spherical aberration—the blurring of an image formed by a spherical mirror which occurs because parallel rays striking the mirror far from the optic axis are focused at a different point. This first piece is entitled "Object;" the second, "Image." The characteristics of each would follow what their name entails optics-wise.

"Object" is characteristic of an object used to create an image using mirrors and lenses—the chords are heavy, sharp, and precise; the notes are not "blurred" together by pedals. The concept is better understood after listening to "Image."

Composed for piano using Sibelius 5 and rendered by Kouen using SONAR 7 Producer Edition.
