Notes sur cette pièce

Warped Clocks has recently been composed for my friend Stephen Krishnan, with his way of playing in mind. Being an instrument I have a substantial amount of physical affinity for, the guitar has always had a special place in the development of my compositional technique; a handy ever since I had begun to delve into the richness of the microtonal world.

In this work the strings are re-tuned so as to explore the interactions between quarter, sixth and eight tones, all smaller than the familiar half step (the distance between two adjacent notes on a piano). The tuning is established in such a way as to maximize the variety of beating patterns that emerge out of harmonics played on different strings. These notes are very close to one another, and at times up to four acoustically different notes with the same letter name resonate together. Sometimes these beatings are fast and at times they are slow, and at other times they are made irregular when more than two notes interact.

The accumulation of momentum brings forth a section that magnifies subtle instabilities from the beginning and renders them much more violent through rasgueado, the rapid strumming of strings. When the energy dies down, a distorted reference

to the beginning comes about. The entirety of the work is permeated by the drone note F, a reference to the second movement of Maurice Ravel’s Gaspard de la nuit, Le Gibet.
