Derri?re Son Double (2001) for flute, clarinet, violin, viola, cello and live electronics

Derri?re Son Double is scored for flute (also bass flute), B-flat clarinet (also bass clarinet), violin, viola, cello, piano and live electronics. In the composition of this work underlies permanently the idea of an acoustic model, either instrumental or electronic; thus the piece's title!

In this sense in some sections of the work the acoustic instruments serve as the model for creating the electronic part, and in other sections it is the electronic concept and synthesis algorithms that serve as models for the instrumental writing.

As for the electronic writing, two approaches have been made: one in real time and another one in differed time, although during performance both happen from the same computer, using a Max patch. Yet in both cases (in the case of true real-time or in the case of precomposed and synthesized electronic fragments) the idea of going back and forth between the two sonic worlds (acoustic and electronic), remains the central concept of the piece.

This piece was commissioned by Casa da M?sica and composed in 2001 for the Ensemble Recherche, which gave its first performance at the M?sica Viva Festival 2001, under the direction of Johannes Kalitzke.

The piece's recording is available on the CD by Miso Records, Sond'Ar-te Electric Ensemble, Vol. I, where Derri?re Son Double is performed by the Sond'Ar-te Electric Ensemble conducted by Pedro Amaral.
