Notes on this piece
A tessellation is the tiling of a plane using geometric
shapes. This piece was inspired by the many
handmade tessellations throughout Granada,
Nicaragua, where I currently live. Most buildings have
beautiful, chaotic combinations of different (often
overlapping) tessellated structures: wooden frames, moldings, small imperfections in their design and construction. The
result is a beautiful blend between predictability and chaos,
mathematical perfection and human craftsmanship.
In this piece, I use extreme repetition and stretching/
contracting of time, proportions and harmonies to mimic
these structures and, most importantly, their imperfections.
There is a gradual accumulation of ideas as the piece
progresses, but everything is derived from the timbre/
harmony that results from simultaneously playing and
almost a glitch in the sound, is the harmonic seed of the
entire piece. The harmonies that emerge from this technique
are similar to sum-and-difference tones.
