ÚLTIMOS for string trio (2013)
Performance notes: All instances of 'Context' are to be performed mechanically, with no apparent musical intention. Situations alternating with such 'context' must begin and end with a sense of sudden and unexpected switching on and off.
= (on a rest) damp the string with the left hand as the bow stops.
An 'X' notehead (Situations II & III) signals to damping the shown note with the rest of the left hand, yet still bowing, keeping the same position so as to seamlessly resume the 'normal' note thereafter. Such X-headed notes are meant to have a pitch-less, 'airy' sound quality. ST / Ord / PSP / SP = Sul Tasto / Ordinario / Poco Sul Ponticello / Sul Ponticello
