Hoquetus (2017)

The main idea of this piece is to develop a single, ever-varying melodic line by means of a constant alternation between the notes of two independent layers. The first of these layers constitutes a loop whose tonal content is continuously re-interpreted by the material of the second one. The rhythmic and harmonic structures influence each other by means of a process of expansion and contraction. The basic harmonic material is a reworking of elements coming from Cantagrimura (2011), for four female voices.
