Mixed. Piano + EA.

Commissioned by American Composers Forum. Piano by Adriana de los Santos (EEUU/Argentina).


“ROOMS” was composed for the Argentine pianist Adriana de los Santos and it was commissioned by the American Composers Forum in 2000. The title refers to the image of 10 rooms in an imaginary art gallery’s installation inside of which imaginary sculptures can be seen, one per room. Each sculpture vibrates in each of the 10 sections of the piece. Each section lasts one minute, except for the last one that lasts more. This piece is an etude on dynamic and visual-spatial sound form. The electronic sounds are made of samples from the inside of the piano, bowed strings and prepared piano techniques transformed by digital software.
