Commissioned by Duo Harperc with funds provided by the Ernst von Siemens Foundation. Electronics created at the Heinrich Strobel Experimentalstudio of the SWR, Freiburg.

Premiered on Monday 16th October 2017 at Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord, Festival D’Automne a Paris. With Virginie Tarrete, harp; Laszlo Hudacsek, percussion; Benjamin Miller (Experimentalstudio of the SWR).

Programme Note

The work explores a combination of purely acoustic relationships between the harp and cimbalom as well as marimba and the interaction between both instrumentalists and that with the technological possibilities. Other non pitched percussion instruments added possibilities of contrast onto my palette which are expanded by spectral delays or granulation treatments.
