Integrados Ricardo Dal Farra, Arturo Gervasoni

Integrados was composed by Ricardo Dal Farra (electroacoustic processors) and Arturo Gervasoni (guitar) in 1986.

The composition is built over two alternating materials. They appear juxtaposed at first, and then superposed. At the end, maximum tension is produced using transformed elements from one of the previous structures, and after that a recapitulation comes. The sounds coming from a classical guitar are processed through a mixing desk, a digital delay line and a pitch transposer. The composition is the outcome of the direct interaction between two musicians, one generating and the other processing sounds. All sounds heard on this piece were played and processed live during recording.

Integrados was premiered (live) in Argentina at Teatro Colón of Buenos Aires in 1986. In the United States it has been performed live by the composers at the Center for the Fine Arts of Miami during the New Music America festival in 1988. As a tape piece it has been played in Cuba during the IV Encuentro Internacional de Música Electroacústica, and in Ohio, United States, during the 1989 International Computer Music Conference (ICMC 89), among others.
