Ciguri (2008)

This composition was developed from part of the music of the dance theatre piece To have done with the judgment of Artaud by Base Theatre for the 2007 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The composition is inspired in the writings of Antonin Artaud among the Tarahumara Indians in Mexico and is structured as different states of intensity stemming from the ritual of the peyote. The piece explores the inharmonic timbral character of different types of bell sounds blended and contrasted in an expanding and contracting time framework that varies from rhythms to textures of irregular sounds.
