Shpilman possesses a particular interest in chaotic forms as they are expressed through artistic means. Fascinated by shapes that synthesize the inherent multiplicity of music, while reflecting back a unified vision or idea, he aspires to translate the relationship between structure and volatility to authenticity in performance through compositional process. For him, performers energy should be classified as a compositional category and is highly detailed in his creative process.
