Vientos de Cotacachi (2021)14:56
Composition conceived from experimentation and sound exploration. The technology expands the timbre of the trombone, combining it with characteristic soundscapes of Cotacachi and creating a tour from March to June 2021. the first movement refers to the numbering of the composer’s house. It is a soundscape with processing that recreates urban sound: birdsong, rain, dogs, gas cars, garbage truck, bus terminal, market, vaccination area. The second movement, “Semana Santa”, incorporates elements taken from the funeral march, a musical genre characteristic of this time of year. There are soundscapes of the referendum, a caravan for the victory of Lasso’s presidency, chimes, processions, indigenous prayers, and Holy Week flute players. The third movement, “Raymi”, contains sonorities of the taking of the square at Cotacachi, such as flutes, harmonicas, conch shells, whistles, shouts and footwork. This is coupled with repetitive rhythms and melodies on the trombone, important sound components found in the Inti Raymi ritual.
