STEREO (1982)

This composition in three parts uses three distinct musical materials: motif groups, surfaces, and apparently endless streams of sounds. These themes are varied so that the initial assertion of their characteristics dissolves, giving way to a more meditative quality. In this way, the piece gradually gains more and more space and depth. A uniform harmonic concept underlies all the sounds, which were produced with an EMS Synthi 100.
