2010 Solo instrument with electronics

Come frecce nella tua mano

for viola & live electronics

composed for the final concert of Cursus 1 at IRCAM (2009 – 2010), performed at Espace de Projection, IRCAM, Paris.

Marie Chilemme, Viola
Andrea Sarto, Live Electronics

Instrumentation: Viola & Live Electronics

In Come Frecce nella Tua Mano the music is entirely build on the duration and the sound quality produced by a lengthwise bowing which starts from the left hand fingering position and moves on the fingerboard towards the bridge.

The musical development of this gesture consists in a sort of voyage of the bow along the strings, whose path – or “choreography” – is the core of the composition. Electronic gives an acoustic enlargement of the sound produced by the bowing, and it's almost integrally based on filtering processes.
