Lunsqui, Alexandre: Guttural 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    A simple object made of two fast repeated notes is at the core of Guttural I. This object is then expanded into various rhythmic structures, textures, and acoustic configurations. In general, the sonic material is very fluid and has a strong sense of directionality from beginning to end. The four instruments (voice included) constitute one single body. At the same time, each one of them has its own dimension, which allows for different tempi, various colors, harmonic changes, noises, but everything residing in the vicinities of initial object.

    To some extent, Guttural II is the negative of Guttural I. While in Guttural I, the rhythm and the pitch contour are linear and directional, in Guttural II, a vocal texture is the fabric of a non-rhythmic development. The form is articulated by having points of attraction and rejection throughout the piece.
