Constellations (2003)

This piece is a study of the timbre of different brass instruments and the blending of musical sounds. The musical structure is constructed based on 4 small timbre constellations of brass instruments: (1) trumpet, tenor and alto sax, (2) French horn, (3) bass and tenor trombone, and (4) piccolo trumpet and tuba. The original sounds of the instruments have been combined with the use of the digital convolution in order to preserve their dynamic articulation and transform their sound colour in different combinations. The timbre has been used in the piece as and agent of integration and structural continuum.
