Palabras

shapeimage_1.jpg

’Palabras’ is a piece for violin or viola and electronics (live or tape). It is a part of my future chamber opera ‘The Illuminated Traces of Ligeia’.  The title Palabras, comes from the short novel ”Light is like water” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, that I use as an inspiration. 

The live-electronic version was a first test of my multifunction live-electronic patch in Max/MSP. It is very demanding for both the musician and the one playing electronics. Nothing is pre-recorded so it is important that all settings are right during the whole piece. 

The version for musician and electronic sound file, acquires a stopwatch and something to start the sound file; loop pedal, computer or mp3-player.


The piece exists in 4 versions:

- Violin/Viola & Live-electronic  

- Violin/Viola & Sound file


'Palabras' is in the serie Equinox". Other pieces in that serie are External cabinet, Merle, Cerulean Minim, Med en rest av kyla & Leif.

’Palabras' is a part of the chamber opera "The Illuminated Traces of Ligeia”.
