Portfolio Piece #2

composition and percussion performed by aaron

The Erato series deals with frenetic musical movement, improvisation, and musical permeability. The music is notated in a traditional format and takes deep inspiration from composers of the 1960’s and 70’s such as György Ligeti and Edgar Varese. At the same time it asks the performers to improvise and interpret the motifs and character of the pieces, to draw from the internal well of inspiration, the muses, that exist in them.
