Notes on this piece
 
"Ballad" is the firstpiece of my "Avoidances" cycle, a series of workswhich tries to buildimaginarygrammarsstartingfrom confrontation betweenreferredaestheticobjects and the recurringsymptoms of mywriting (complexsoundobjects, non-rhetorical typologies of development, complexrepetition and his destructive, and not assertive potential, and above all, the seeking of a aestheticstatute of the impasse).
This first piece of the cycle exploreddifferent types of referredobjects and his projection on large scaledmaterials, such as briefs directs quotations to referred noises, stylisticsreferredgestures to stretched or augmentedmelodic profiles as structure parameters, manipulation of a referedform, etc. In thatwork the referencewas a veryfamous jazz standard by George Gerswin on a version of Oscar Peterson. The choice of materialis not randomly made, the chosedmaterial has an statute of "thing" and the results are very far of late's '60 to '80 quotations or "denkenmaterial" discussion, and inscribeit self more on latepostmodernpremises (permeability, loss of depth and equalization of the material, loss of historicity, "schizophrenic" temporality, etc...asFrederic Jameson sowelldescribed).
