Hypersounds Event IX
In cooperation with:
Fernando Maglia - ... hendir esa sombra
In short, the work "... hendir esa sombra" is commissioned by the Damus Electroacoustic Ensemble (UNA Universidad, Buenos Aires), created and directed by the composer Pablo Freiberg.
The electroacoustic material comes from the fusion of various sound sources (acoustic and electronic) designed by the undersigned and made by the 19 members of the ensemble in charge of 8 computers working in real time.
The words of the texts were freely chosen from texts by the Argentine writer Macedonio Fernández.
Pablo M. Freiberg - Bioelectroacústica: Música Residual
Dedicated to Marcelo Delgado and the "Compañía Oblicua", "Bioelectroacústica: Música Residual" (2015) is a work inspired by the concept of recycling and reuse of materials, which operates from the resignification of those sound gestures considered secondary or peripheral in the traditional musical discourse.
It can then be observed how those elements inherent to the acoustic environment (resonances, reverberation, echoes, spatialization), the ornaments (vibratos, trills, tremolos), the small deviations of human interpretation (tiny portamentos before the change of pitch, minimal pitch irregularities in vibratos, small rhythmic differences in tremolos) and the peripheral sounds implicit in the nature of each instrument (bow noise, sound of keys, sound of air) are moulded, reconfigured and reused; to reposition themselves in the category of generators and propellants of discourse.
Pablo Franchelli - Nos esparcimos en el viento
Fleeting sounds and aggressive sounds. Lyrical or distant melodies. Transfigured sounds.
Appealing to the extensive palette of instrumental resources offered by the oboe, the work seeks to create a musical discourse where expression, instrumental skill and beauty found in the unconventional sounds of the instrument are present.
Oboe solo: David Bortolus
Diego Andrés Moreno - Soulèvement
Soulèvement is uprising, to rebel against an established order, a set of dogmas, imposed "truths", or a tradition.
Piece for piano and four groups or interpreters with computers for real-time interpretation of written electroacoustic music.
The work received the first prize in the Juan Carlos Paz contest (2018) in the category "solo instrument or voice (with or without electroacoustics)".
