Sobreposições is an electroacoustic multichannel piece which uses as it’s starting sound material and structure, a piano piece I’ve written before.
The only sounds heard are those of the piano, although, most of the time, their timbral identity remains hidden.
The main aspect I wanted to explore in this piece was a closed relationship between melodic/rhythmic counterpoint and space/sound movements counterpoint, working together as a “functional” pair, up to eight parts.
At the same time I wanted to keep the music flow “unidirectional”, a continuous flow of processes that drive from one point to another without any return or flashback.
This piece was finished in 2000 and premiered at the Música Viva Electroacoustic Music Festival, in Lisbon, in that same year.
