Feelin' extra (staves)?

Two examples from Yvar Mikhashoff's virtuosic piano trilogy, Elemental Figures

 If you thought Rachmaninoff's 4 staves was extra, Mikhashoff more than triples that! At first glance, I'd guess that Mikhashoff employs (/deploys?) an outrageous number of staves to graphically represent the explosiveness/expansiveness of the gesture. A glissando on two staves with 8va lines may sound the all the same but this does look significantly more striking (and ridiculous), which may offer something for the performer's psychology.
