Guirlandes Samuel Pellman

Guirlandes (“Garlands”) is based closely on the motivic and harmonic patterns of a piano work of the same name composed in 1914 by Alexander Scriabin. This music, however, is scored primarily for the sounds of mallet instruments and consists of masses of rapid tremolos that have been extensively processed with granular synthesis techniques. This texture is then embellished by streams of slower tremolo figures that weave through the space of the music like planetary rings.
