Performance Instructions

Organic 2.0

General Info

-

Dynamics and glissandos are implied in the different figures. Otherwise, specify in traditional notation. Senza vibrato unless specify otherwise. When a shape does not specify a pitch, play the one as before, or apply the 1/4 tone modification, if indicated. Specific playing techniques are written in the score or detailed in the *** section of this performance instructions. Colors are related with a certain sound-color. Detailed in the color palette section of this performance instructions.

!2

Follow one line doing small glissandos. Between each gesture there is a small pause. As the line gets thinner so does the sound (morendo).

All the players (without the instruments) have to exhale together short but naturally (not too intense). For each circle an exhalation.

Color palette Ordinary (exception at beginning: nasal) Strident and rough sound. Ecco Airy, dirty sound but delicate and fragile (develop more freely in page 4) Clear, beautiful sound. Opaque (mutes, for instruments that allow it. Soprano mutes with the hand.) Only air

*** Page 2 *Vocal fry (for the soprano): *Imitate soprano (for strings): *Imitate wind noise (for strings): *Air and voice (for winds):

Page 4 (Solo) *Solo Trombone: *Clarinet shadow-aura:

Rasping low voice-throat sound. Imitate vocal fry, bow with pressure, sul tasto. Fast bow without pressure, sul pont. With left hand irregular movement on the lower string. Air noise and then deep voice in the instrument.

Corresponding to the texture inside the figure. The trombone must improvise following the texture using Wawa mute and extreme soft multiphonics, split tones, voice + pitch, etc. Corresponding to the silhouette and space surrounding the texture inside the drawing. The clarinet should follow the trombone as a pianissimo shadow-aura, while considering the behavior of its corresponding rol in the drawing.
