sorrow - 2020

(score will be updated soon)

When a loved one passes away, individuals experience death in varying ways. Personally, my encounter with this phenomenon caused the creation of this piece. Consequently, this piece elicits the most intimate emotions for me, while the audience may perceive it differently. The electronic section incorporates sounds derived from the mourning ceremony of the deceased, which have been analyzed and transformed into electronic elements. at the first segment of the piece there is an flute improvisation by Parastoo Shirani, based on the the content and also Hungarian Pastoral Fantasy of Franz Doppler. In the second part of the composition, specific musical phrases were composed for the flute and subsequently recorded. These recorded phrases were then processed electronically in Csound Language, to modify their sound color in order to achieve the desired effect and create an unique sonic experience.
