21 OCTOBER 2013, SHANGHAI – It is time to look back

Always the same: checking today my work from past years, I found that there are many similarities in the musical processes, especially at the beginning of each piece. These processes are mainly linear, clear and in some cases they lack of surprise (not to say boring). I think this happens mainly because the musical aspects and the technic had been the most important aspects in my compositions. Expression always in second place or hidden very good. Another reason may be that the use of traditional notation was restricting some of my musical and conceptual ideas.

The piece for timbal and electronics should avoid this linearity, and most of all, should be a chance to expand my limits as composer;
explore new ways of notation;
find a middle point between technic and expression;
ensure that the sonic result really reflects the initial concept of the work;
