A particular kind of interaction between music, space, performers, and audience is explored in this piece for “spatialized orchestra of transfigured guitars”. Distributed in a large space, each one of the eleven players uses five (suspended) guitars to perform his/her part, written using a combination of verbal instructions and Tablatura notation.
Composing this music involved equal parts of theoretical speculation and empirical research regarding microintervals, space, and techniques of sound production. The overall pitch repertoire was developed out of the sum of particular cases, as each one of the fifty-five guitars is tuned according to a singular intervalic design.
