Wheels and Waves

The basic idea behind the composition of the piece is the mapping of different types of gestures from one instrument (or instrumental layer) onto another. Instead of notes, gestures and shapes are the basic constructional elements. The two basic types of shapes and gestures used are “wheels”, which are repetitive patterns, presented mostly in winds, and “waves”, which are irregular or uncontrollable sound patterns, presented mostly in percussion instruments and strings. The narrative of the piece is structured in four sections constructed through a “montage” of various orchestral sound layers, inspired from the electronic studio approach to sound montage.
