Pieces for Chamber Ensemble is an arrangement for six
instruments of two of the pieces from the Scordatura
Suite for solo guitar.
spite of having studied the classical guitar seriously
for a number of years, these pieces are somehow deeply
connected to my early experiences as a rock guitarist.
The guitar represents a very intuitive and physical side
of my music making, while my ensemble works, which I hope
are no less visceral, grow out of ideas and expressions
of sound that I hear in my mind. It is my creative goal
to somehow combine these two different stylistic approaches
in order to derive a deeper and more developed musical
language as a composer.
the most interesting aspect of this experiment lies in the
difference in character between the different versions of
the pieces. While all musical constructs of the pieces are
the same (melody, harmony, form, rhythm, etc...) each work
takes on a completely different character than its original,
