Clones was composed and recorded by Ricardo Dal Farra (electroacoustic processors) and Arturo Gervasoni (guitar).
All the time the same pitch class is sounding, in the middle section jumping between octaves and in the third section one octave lower than in the first one, but always the same. The sounds coming from a classical guitar are processed through a mixing desk, a delay line and a digital 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. “Clones” was premiered live in Argentina at Centro Cultural Ciudad de Buenos Aires on September 5 of 1986. As a tape piece it has been played in festivals and symposiums such as the RES Musica Baltimore International Electroacoustic Music Festival, in the USA.
