Crickpet Yves Gigon

Crickpet is a piece where the sounds themselves were the guiding elements. In effect, I let myself be led by the various sonorities, without a preconceived structure, without an exact form, first choosing a series of sounds, then transforming them with various techniques (transposition, time-stretching, granular synthesis, etc), and then placing an initial sound in an audio sequencer, then adding others, moving them around in the score (of the sequencer), superimposing them, making them move in space, until I found the whole pleasing.

There is an infinitude of possibilities with such a diversity of sounds. This is but one: Crickpet.

The title of the piece comes from one of the sounds used, the sound of a cricket. Since the sound was modified, the word was as well.
