Concerto for flute, processors, and tape (2018)
Concerto for flute, processors, and tape represents the composer’s intention to modify or modulate sound in real time. The title of the piece does not refer to the traditional concertante formal structure, but to the relationship between the flute and the electronics, which symbolise the “orchestra”. The flute’s signal is the source of sound-modulation processes in real time, which the performer dictates by manually controlling at the same time different links between sound processors. The tape constitutes the instrument section within the conception of “orchestra”, which performs the role of the accompaniment, while, considered separately, it also constitutes an exclusively electronic piece, realised in the form of recorded modulation processes of analogue modular sound synthesisers.
