Core/Uncore Sébastien Lavoie

For this experimental piece I’ve tried to play with opposing musical parts. One of the fundamental components of the work is the rhythmic sections, which represents the Core part. It is a foundational element that is distinct from the other parts. The opposing segments are called Uncore, they are different in nature as they use atmospheric sounds compared to the Core’s rhythmically driven sections. The Uncore parts provide an important function in the composition by creating a contrast in relation to the Core. The principal aim of this work is to explore the musical parameters of rhythm that interlink with arrhythmic sections. I want to contrast the moments containing no rhythmical elements with the rhythmical ones without losing a sense of anchoring that the pulse provides. Another aim is to give an impression to the listener that time disappears during the transition of Core/Uncore sections.
