Expansion is a piece for amplified ice blocks and sound spatialization, commissioned and performed by Architek percussion. The title of the work refers to the volume expansion that occurs during the state transition of water from liquid to solid state. With this piece, I wanted to evoke the bonds and behaviour of molecules in different states of matter, imagining a comparison with the bonds and behaviour that can characterize human relationships and the relationships between humans and nature.
Rebonds is a playful piece that explores the boundaries between rhythm, pitch, texture, and space. The work is inspired by the rhythmic figure of the rebound, a recurrent figure in electroacoustic music, characterized by the repetition of an element at a progressively increasing speed. The goal is to create sound choreographies, exploring sound spatialization possibilities.
For Hannah is a multichannel acousmatic music piece inspired by the royal cobra (Ophiophage Hannah). I wrote this composition because the first time I heard the hiss of this animal, I was surprised by how it sounded like a musical phrase
Inner Out is a Surround Concert for Ice and Live Electronics. The piece is based on the concept of macro photography, and therefore focused on the micro-sounds caused by melting ice. The sound textures and the percussive elements are generated from ice blocks used as musical instruments.
