les instances (2019): for diffused, synthesized sounds and large ensemble

Stylianos DIMOU (Composer)

Research output: Non-textual formComposition


In "les instances" I am exploring the coexistence among digital, synthesized sounds and instrumental material. I am interested in experimenting with the reflection of an instrumental group on a synthesized soundscape that dominates the music discourse and has no spectral and/or sonic similarities with the material articulated by the ensemble. The structure of the piece is driven by a continuum of interchangeable, phrasal collages of distinct sonic and rhythmical structures, projected as sonic blocks, and formulating, eventually, the dramaturgy of the piece. The piece was written for Talea ensemble and is heartily dedicated to George E. Lewis.
