Six Waves (2013)
Composition for Flute, Clarinet, Violin, Cello, Piano and Electronic soundtrack. 15 min.
Dedicated to Meitar ensemble.
Waves of energy interchange on four dimensions; Within each of the players, between the ensemble members and the conductor, between the ensemble and soundtrack, between the six simultaneously generated sound waves and the audience. The group creates a new entity which may be considered organic, biological or mechanistic. Like any organic system or machine, at some point it ceases to exist.
The musicians are invited to be lead by their own body movement, thus creating the music as a side effect of their bodily movements. The music happens inside one note, between two neighboring notes, and through the relationship between the musicians of the ensemble. A deep concentration and sense of responsibility is demanded from the players, who need to make compositional choices throughout the piece, based on the elements of the moment - the space and its resonance, the people in the room, their own mood on that day. The music is alive and re-created, re-composed and de-composed on every implementation/instance of the piece.
