plural bestiaries

Definition of bestiary

1 : a medieval allegorical or moralizing work on the appearance and habits of real or imaginary animals
2a : a collection of descriptions or representations of real or imaginary animals b : an array of real humans or literary characters often having symbolic significance

Bestiario (“Bestiary”) is a collection of pieces in which the performers are asked to embody an imaginary animal through sound. This animal participates in the composition process as it gradually reveals itself in its sonic qualities which help dictate the work’s discourse (form, techniques, contrasts, gestures, etc.). This means that this imaginary animal has agency in the work, which leads me to make decisions that I would not have otherwise made.

In this sixth piece of the "Bestiario" cycle, I took a slightly different approach and used a non-imaginary animal as a collaborator. The musical qualities of this being serve as a sonic model for every aspect of the work.
