Notes on this piece
Ephemerals & Drones  is an abstract fresque of ephemeral microkosmes where the short, extended or mass acoustic/sound phenomena, raise, dissapears and re-appears identical or subtly varied. There is no any development, only fleeting/impermanent/transient/transitory appearances/apparitions and sound variations  (ad infinitum); stable and unstables drones, sudden verticalities and distorded textures are the base material.Ephemerals & Drones has been conceived like a sonic matter (material) of multiples instrumental substances from fixed pitch to pure noise.The composition creates boundary situations for the execution; it allow to reveal from the acoustic sound electronic sonorities without any aim of a machine; it introduces various instrumental techniques that need a perfect synchronisation and an excessive and constant attention between the performers.The harp and the contrabass are localy prepared during the piece by specific objects; the timpani are mainly rubbed during almost the whole piece.The rubbed timpani technique, used for the first time, changes dramaticaly  the usual way of the timpano sound production (stroken sound, short sustain, with fast release/decay); the technique provides "electronic" sonorities never heard before: drones and sliding sounds totaly distorded or perfectly harmonic that could be played ad infinitum without any interruption.
