Details

Based on a text written in 1988 in memory of a friend who passed away, transient was written in 2008 being scored for soprano, prepared piano and two electronic sources, one consisting of live processing, the other including the text - whispered, spoken and sung - transformed in the electronic studio. Another important vocal source is breathing, imagined as a metaphor of life after life. The unfolding of the music is based on a relational system where a word (a phrase or a concept) of the poem is associated to a specific pitch. Thus syntactic relations between pitch and word (meaning) become musical phrases articulated in six sections corresponding to the six verses of the text.
