Música invisible for two halves clarinets (2004)

works in progress

Música invisible for two halves clarinets re-designs the clarinet in a personal way in relation to the musical tradition. The organology (acoustical studies on how musical instruments produce sound) comes together with the creative exploration of sound possibilities and ways of playing: research and experimentation. In Música invisible, the extended techniques focus on how these new sonorities transform the perception of music, becoming extended listening techniques.

Two embouchures, one player, bring back fragments of music by Guillaume de Machaut, which are played in this distort but very  pleasant polyphony.

Two mouthpieces in one mouth synchronize two melodic independent voices, in one breath.
