Pierre Boulez often reworked his own pieces, producing a latent idea and an unexpected extension of the original "indestructible core". As a tribute to Pierre Boulez, Philippe Manoury has reworked one of his own pieces, la Partita for violin and electronics from 2012, including instrumental sections. Multiple meters exist simultaneously as does a dialogue between the soloist and the electronics. A real and virtual performance via technology. In a quite different aesthetic, Rebecca Saunders has undertaken an extension of her Fury for bass, diffracting it in an ensemble of instruments that emerge from the deepest registers. Emanuele Palumbo tries to combine "objective" time with the fluctuating time of the performer—in this case, the variation of his heartbeat.
