for harpsichord, world percussion and electronics

1998   19'   pub: Composers Edition

Encounter is an attempt to confront and transcend two different music traditions and two dissimilar approaches to music making: the intuitive and ritualistic tradition of the East (represented by the world percussion) and the precise, yet passionate and daring, attitude of the West (represented by the harpsichord). Although maintaining their own historical and cultural connotations, both instruments are trying to establish a link that should enable them to find a common language and an inspiring ground for interaction. The inevitable pitch-based discourse of the harpsichord and the rhythmic universe of world percussion are gradually projected onto another musical space delineated by the electronics.
