Boijdar Spassov: Fiato Continuto I–V
Fri, December 03, 2004 8 pm CET, Concert

In his cycle for brass instruments and electronics, »Fiato continuo,« the composer Bojidar Spassov experiments with short samples played by traditional folklorist brass instruments. These samples form the foundations of the countless metamorphoses of sound images in his pieces. In the progressions of the pieces, the sampled instruments occasionally gain a stronger meaning only to hide again in regular intervals behind the quasi-improvised solo instrumentation. Thus the composer creates a fascinating exchange between the acoustic and electronic instruments. In the context of this performance, Spassov’s cycle will be recorded for a CD production to be released in 2005 with WERGO in the Edition ZKM.
