Granular Leaves (2002)5:00Massimo CarlentiniDISContact! III CDs, 1, 4 | DISContact! III competition
To listen to the sound of leaves falling always makes us a little sad.
Autumn has arrived!
In this piece I have tried, playing a little, to build “ images of sound”: with the same emotions.
The clarinet has been used: for its versatile timbre, in the harmonic part; not tranquil and mysterious, in the bass register.
The electronic sounds are related to the instrument, in so much as they develop counterpoint styles in the bass register, and glue- like aspects like harmonic strips to sustain the leaves too.
The piece tells through the various phases, the epilogue.
