About the program:

 

Residu I (2020)
Floris van Bergeijk

 

In “Residu I” we hear an outcome of a process which, for now, remains hidden and unknown.

“Residu I”  might be a reflection of a yet to be discovered reality. As part of larger work it is the first part where we are presented with a result. All that has happened before, we don’t know. We are witnessing a last part, a coda, a conclusion of something that was once probably something else. The only thing we know is that somewhere along the way we lost something. Maybe a piano.

The idea for “Residu I” was conceived as a challenge, to pose the composer with a fait accompli, to reverse the process of causality – to come up with the conclusion first and figure out the problems later.

Now comes the hard part: finding out where all this came from and what its origins are.

“The idea says everything. The idea dictates everything that follows – you just stay true to the idea.”

“Results, I just want the results!”

 

Lieux de Passage (2007)
Antoine Beuger

 

Dutch composer, flautist and music publisher, Antoine Beuger is a founder of the Wandelweiser collective, whose music is characterized by sparse, quiet, fragile soundscapes incorporating frequent silences. “Lieux de Passage” (which translates as Places of Passage), could be likened to a slow-burning log, in that it radiates warmth and transforms so slowly that it’s hard to catch its processes at work. It was written very much with his fellow Wandelweiser composer and clarinetist Jürg Frey in mind. The piece provides the clarinet with an almost completely notated structure. Exact note lengths are the only thing not really defined, but pitches and attack are given. The score offers the remaining members of the ensemble freedom of when to play, asking pitch based musicians to pick out elements of the clarinet playing to determine what notes they play, and offering non-pitch based musicians free selection. So the work is a wonderfully sorrowful, yearningly romantic work for clarinet that is coloured in a soft and subtle manner by the group behind.

 

 

POLAR b (2019)
Silvia Borzelli

POLAR b is especially written for Ensemble Modelo62, and it’s an adaptation / arrangement for 6 instruments (Bass Clarinet, Trumpet, Cello, Doublebass, Percussion and Digital Organ) of POLAR, a piece for 5 instruments composed in 2017.

Polar coordinates are used often in navigation as the destination or direction of travel; they can be given as an angle and distance from the object being considered.

In the piece, the instruments function as polar coordinates but tending and searching for weight and gravity.
Each instrument builds its relation and distance with the others, in a transparent synthesis of timbres, within a gradual polarization of the harmonic field.

The result is a net of fixed points with their attack and sustain, reiterated intervals, persistent and characterized rhythmical patterns in a continous game of interrelations and juxtapositions.

 

Neon Study #1 (2020)
~ripple lights~
Christina Viola Oorebeek

Iridescent filaments appear and fade with the speed of light in genius Nikola Tesla’s invention, the ‘Tesla Coil’.  In the 1970’s, William Parker developed a modern version – plasma balls.  These live visualisations of electric/solar phenomena form intense inspirations for Oorebeek’s sound painting of their workings in extreme slow motion.

The textural polyphony in the stasis ‘no-voltage state’ is activated by the click-on device, triggering transitions to increasingly colored soundforms and erratic rhythms by voltage variations, sounded by the trumpet.  Reacting to its’ wobbly wave patterns, the ensemble writhes as its Neonic beginnings morph into plasmatic tendrils.  When reaching the borders of their space, touchpoints release the whole soundfield into a new reality.
