Asko/Scoenberg ensemble conducted by Bas Wiegers,“Muziekgebouw aan ’t Y” , 4/9/2008
Splatter is a piece for large ensemble and electronics written in 2008. Each musical event is treated as an abstract sound object and can be transformed, usually through simple addition or subtraction. Multiple sound objects form patterns or phrases but sound objects are also constructed by smaller sound fragments through a similar process. A three part structure is constructed by the grouping of morphological similar sound objects and their transformations and permutations. The title, beside the connection to the violent horror films, refers to the fragmented, ‘broken’ and reconstructed patterns.
