De Natura Sonorum - II - Accidents / Harmoniques

Program note

De natura Sonorum - II. Accidents/Harmonics (1975) | Bernard Parmegiani (1927-2013)
Arranged for acoustic sextet vy James O’Callaghan (2018)

''('Accidents/Harmonics'). In the second movement, very short events of instrumental origin change the harmonic tone of the continuum they interrupt or overlap. Moreover, the high notes are underplayed, which stimulates the attention given to other phenomena generally hidden by the melodic form applied to the instrumental play.''
