Notes

  • Program notes: 

    This piece shares the same idea as the previous one ("Ocupação_1", 2007, for 2 clarinets and percussion), which is to define and develop an acoustic space that is occupied by minimum material.

    The piece has three parts. The first one establishes a maximum occupation of that space through the production of non-pitched sound with different timbres (sss(u), sss(i), chhh, fff). The second starts off from a void space (octaves) and moves towards a harmonic occupation. In the third part, the harmonic sequence is reverted into a continuum (glissando) revealing the middle harmonies.
