'POLYPHONY IN FIVE MOVEMENTS WITH GRADUAL CRESCENDO'
ETUDE FOR LISTENER N°2
‘Polyphony in five movements with gradual crescendo’ etude for listener n.3 is an etude written to improve listening skills and familiarize the listener with modes of listening .
Concerned with the expressed sonic qualities of a space, the composition develops a ludic approach with descriptions and interpretations that directly involve the listener in the experience of the soundscape.
Starting with a gentle beginning, ‘Polyphony in five movements with gradual crescendo’ centers on specific dimensions, and gradually involves each of these movements into a complex awareness of listening.
The composition follows a structure in five parts that reveal the various modes of listening and attention.
