Close-closer (2013) fixed media

The title stood as the theme of a call for project through which I investigated the morphological relations between the two words.

Technically speaking, a dynamic "movement of thought" happens thanks to the alteration of the original material, i.e a basic operation of morphological addition (+r).

Therefore, I intended to explore the discussed issue of meaning in music through a rather formalistic point of view : how far following the development and transformation of a single musical entity can generate a global feeling of consistency ? This piece answers by making the most of morphological derivation, when the presence of the tremoli-like texture gradually increases, appearing transgressively from another piece : Twice And End, for flute, guitar & live-computer.



The piece was composed for the Musica Viva association in collaboration with the triennial of architecture of Lisbon (Pt), July 2013.
