Notes on this piece

This piece is an exploration of rust as a timbral experience, where different dimensions of the oxidation process seem to be augmented to perceive the subtle details of the inner transformation. Rust could be connected to the idea of desolation, a kind of poetic stillness: the object that has been forgotten, causing it to lose its original qualities, its purpose, and leaving it with no option but to corrode in complete bleakness. However, rusted things seem to be fragile and be able to harm at the same time, thus I approach the concepts of roughness and shrillness from cross-modal associations between the visual and tactile perception of rust modulated into timbre. From a technical perspective, texture responds to the internal distribution and behaviour of the timbral components, from which I work with the sources of sound to produce and modulate particular levels of inharmonicity, spectral instability and loudness.

Performed by Riot Ensemble. Recording of a rehearsal at Crossroads International Contemporary Music Festival 2021.
