AMPLIFICATION AND DISPOSITION OF SPEAKERS


ORDER AND FORM This work consists of 7 miniatures. The order in which the first six (No. 1 - No. 6) of these are played is variable, and it is to be decided by the performers before each concert. The only miniature that is fixed in the work's form is number 7, which must always be played last. At the beginning of it (i.e. No. 7), both trumpet and trombone player must turn to the center in order to face each other, with the large tam-tam in the middle, and then start playing.

PERFORMANCE NOTES AND NOTATION Each player has an extra two-line staff below the conventional five-line staff indicating pitches and dynamics. Here, a thick moving line indicates the proximity and angle of approximation to their respective resonator, whereby the closer this line is to the upper limit of the staff, the closer the bell of the instrument should be with regards to this resonator (5-10 cm & 90º angle), and the farther it moves from it (i.e. the closer to the lower limit), the more distant from it (~30+ cm & 180º+ angle). In addition to this, in some passages the trumpet and trombone parts have another extra staff above. This one simply indicates the tightness of the embouchure: up = very tight, down = loose or normal.

Ascending quarter-tone scale, from 3/4 flat to 3/4 sharp. An arrow added to an accidental indicates a very small inflection of the pitch (1/6 – 1/8 of a tone). Circles above the notes indicate the amount of pitch that should be coming out of the instrument. A full (black) circle indicates full tone and an empty circle a very airy, virtually toneless sound (no discernible pitch).

Clarinet The clarinetist must choose two different, very dissonant multiphonics beforehand, which will be played in miniatures 3 (m. 3) and 6 (m. 5).

Written for Eloy Neira, Felix Del Tredici and Pedro Molina Perm, Russia - Montreal, Canada August - December 2012 Dur. ~7'
