Notes on this piece
Fagote, in Portuguese, means bassoon, the title, Metafagote, suggests both an attempt to compose music that is self-referential to the idiomatic, physical, timbral idiosyncrasies of the bassoon, while attempting to explode, deconstruct, and ultimately go beyond the expressive faculties of the instrument. Here, similarly to Tran(slate), basic recognizable instrumental elements (percussive ricochets, multiphonics, drones, glissandi) are subjected to a pre-composed fractal (self-similar) structure. As I interpret each corner of this canvas, which is comprised of extremely specific sets of proportions and durations, each basic bassoon element gains a life of its own and unfolds the musical journey of the work. With the help of amplification and spatialization, the listener is placed inside an imaginary, compound, and orchestral metabassoon. The soloist leaves a sonic trace, which is picked up, transformed, and projected through loudspeakers.
Rebekah Heller (bassoons) and Levy Lorenzo (sound engineer)
