Sombras

for Clarinet & Informatics

This work represents a sort of dialogue between human and machine, clarinetist and his own shadow (“sombra”, in Spanish).
The solo clarinet part, very contrasting, switches from a state of loneliness to a state of euphoria or even anxiety.
The computer accompaniment, programmed with the software Max MSP, is conceived as a sort of metaphysical reaction of what is happening in real life.
