Sasso

Solo for percussion (vibraphone and marimba) and recorded sounds.
The piece is dedicated to Jerker Johansson who also performed it the first time 20th Oct 2018 in Ale Kulturrum.

Sasso (italian for “stone”) is an exploration of the sound world of stones. Together with the wood in the marimban and the metal in the vibraphone, it becomes a trio for three materials. The notes played by the percussionists are “distilled” from recordings of stone sounds. The pitchless sounds turned out to contain fragments of tones which have been joined together into a longer context.

Palimpsest is a handwriting, usually on parchment, whose text was scraped and washed away to be replaced with a new one.
The recorded sounds consists of manipulated scratch sounds. The flute has two tonal layers (pentatonic/major scale) to relate to, and there is a gradual movement from the pentatonic to the major scale. At the end, the short melody is played, which is the origin of all other notes.
