Plastiches (2005) 5.1 surround
This piece started as a study of different strategies for approaching space. The piece is inspired in a comical evolution of some spatial pastiches with a point of departure in transformations of plastic objects to create timbral and spatial allusions. The whole piece is composed using plastic sounds and foams recorded in an anechoic chamber (no reverberation). The structure of the piece consists of two parts, always maintaining a spatial and a timbral counterpoint between the sounds of plastics and foams. The first part of the piece is a naked exposition of extreme dry impulsive plastic sounds in a constant counterpoint with grainy sounds of foams, while the second part is a metaphor of the first where space and time are expanded with transformations and recounts from the first part.
