Percussion quartet and live electronics, 2003
Duration: twelve minutes
Premiere: University of California, San Diego, U.S., 2003
UCSD Percussion Quartet
Movements I and III
It is made up of four movements grouped in pairs. The first pair, comprising the first and third movements, characterizes by its gestural writing and the heterogeneous non-pitch sound of percussion instruments.
In contrast, the second pair (movements II and IV) behaves as a precision mechanism, its color is homogeneous, electronic and pitched. Here an interface orchestrates and spatializes live sounds produced by percussion keyboards.
