Ace (2015)

3 (or multiple of three) musicians

Commission: Productions SuperMusique

Programme notes

Ace is a composition of musical gestures from which each musician develops sound material. Its nuances in decibels and playing mannerisms are in a system that rotates through three zones. In this moment in the history of the world it might be argued that “thought” has never been experienced in such fragmented and erratic patterns. Rather than masking this somewhat negative phenomenon, here interference and disruption is encouraged, allowing an otherwise simple formula to break open.
