Ritornello - solo percussion

commissioned and premiered by Oliver Molina 

(2012)

 

Ritornellos is loosely built on the Fibonacci sequence (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, ....). I took these numbers as units of lengths and rearranged them (e.g. 13, 1, 8, 3, 4, 2). The resulting piece contains passages of unequal lengths while each relates back to a single unit.
