Encuentro desfigurado

April, 2018

For ensemble of seven instruments, two organs and fixed electronics (quadraphonics)

This piece was composed during a week long meeting in Orgelpark, an international concert hall in Amsterdam for organists, composers and other artists, which aims to integrate the organ into mainstreamed musical culture through a new presentation.

During one week, composers, four organists, and part of the NEE ensemble, were given the space to explore the acoustic possibilities of the space and the wide range of possibilities that the organs there could offer in combination with the ensemble.

The special instrumentation used in this piece has to do with the aim of integrating as much as resources and possibilities that composers were given during that week.

The idea of the piece deals with a translation from electronics into acoustics of a traditional electronic process, the Frequency Modulation (FM).
