The star-sign “Libra” is represented by the scales, and Nørgård’s cosmic vocal work Libra is about love, harmony and balance. The graphic is an algorithm that explores organic growth and balance. It is also built with fractals – another important aspect of Nørgård’s original composing technique which he calls his “infinity series”.
