2008

Op. 270
Promenade
electroacoustic (6:00)

Commissioned by CRiSAP

Op. 269
Arborescences
electroacoustic (11:24)

The stereo piece explores temporal syntax based on my research on timescales. Timescales at various points in the piece move at different pace, so that arborescent temporal structures move apart and then meet again. Periodicities turn into erratic behaviour and the opposite, undergoing a number of processes of change at the same time.
