Notes on this piece
 

Timing is a sort of deconstruction (or diversion) of a traditional Jazz quartet hierarchy, in which the relationship between the four instruments is rather fixed and functional. Whereas they are usually separated from each other and independant indeed, instruments are getting here either merged, reversed, or their role thwarted, in order to create an original and dynamic musical form.

Timing is also a formal play, implying a set of alternating, expanding large sections of music, in which the standard functions of themes, chorus, transitions and other development-like materials are easily recognizable. In addition, some sections of the piece should be improvised.

Timing, last, explores the literal idea of delay, in relation to the medieval technique of color and talea. The entire piece is ruled, therefore, by an overall principal of Isorhythm and periodicity.
