Como... (1988), für Tonband oder computer
idea de la muerte
con este incontenible
afán de vida?
This short piece was comissioned by the WDR in connexion with a presentation of works of C. Nancarrow in Köln. The computer begins by generating a harmonic structure which is kept unchanged during the whole composition. Eight voices comment this structure at great speed, however with always changing timbre, creating thus a kaleidoscopic soundscape. A second texture, a recording of native music of ESMERALDAS, a region of the coast in Ecuador, creates a second, 'complementary' depth. This composition can be performed 'live' or played from tape.
