Posted: "Broken Symmetries 2" in Essays & Endnotes – an analysis of Olivier Messiaen's Isle de feu 2, mm.92-131, which I've dubbed 'Magma Dance'
AFAIK, these 40 bars have previously eluded analysis – at least I don't know of any in the extensive Messiaen literature. (And from what I've been told, they are the bane of many a pianist.) My analysis at this point remains partial - it ends in a puzzle that perhaps others might solve by either cracking the code or giving a convincing argument that there is no code to crack.
