Can

Description

Can is an abstract work that interrogates a limited range of sonic material.

Can takes two metal cans – a trash can and soda can - and crushes and shreds them sonically. It is a work of disrupted and transformed loops and rhythms shaped by strong spatial trajectories, and where classic compositional techniques of repetition and variation of material, within a strong formal design are at its core. This is a stereo version of a work that is conceived as a 5.1 piece.

"Can" won at the (2010) VIII International Contemporary Music Contest "Città di Udine" the Special Mention and medal of the Senato della Repubblica Italiana for the “electro-acoustic music” section. "Can" will be released on the Taukay label in 2011.
