Zoom - Ensemble intercontemporain
Tutti by Yan Maresz could have been called, according to its author, Ripieno: electronics often play the role of the soloist here in this Baroque concerto grosso, in opposition with the denseness of Ripieno. Using a zoom effect, the electronics become autonomous, becoming free from the mass before returning. This creates a constant "re-focusing" between the work's electronics and instrumental group, between the synthesis and the polyrhythmic models. Without electronics, Brian Ferneyhough also borrows certain concerto grosso principles with an unexpectedly simple surface: five independent elaborations of the same material. The visual principle of the zoom is also at work in Beat Furrer’s music, constructed on processes of unveiling and filtering material in constant metamorphosis.
