Silencios Imaginados (Imagined Silences)
Silencios Imaginados (Imagined Silences) was written in the spring of 2001 for the Assisi Musiche Ensemble who premiered the work at the chamber music festival in Assisi, Italy in August of the same year. It has subsequently performed by the ensemble at other concerts and festivals in Italy. The work features the subtle interplay and counterpoint between the timbres available on the instruments in the ensemble. In addition the clarinet and flute registers and timbres are expanded with the addition of bass clarinet, alto flute, and piccolo being doubled by the clarinetist and the flutist throughout the work. Subtle gradations in the vibrato used by the instruments as well as a variety of delicate articulations, bowings, and effects performed inside the piano, are some of the more important details that are presented in counterpoint throughout the piece and that are the focus of the work. As with much of my music the counterpoint between registration, timbre, instrumentation, and pacing as well as the exploration of the point where sound ends and silence begins are primary concerns (and hence the title).
