Claudio Jacomucci (*1975, ITA): Co-incidences (2015)

Co-incidences uses a polymeters and rhythm phasing technique analogue to the behaviour of a system of oscillating penduli.

In order to be performed, musicians must follow an individual metronome track on headphone. Cyclical rhythmical configurations are the result of playing in five slightly different tempo tracks. Within these apparently confused events, some clues of deconstructed material – masked by massive editing and with the elaboration of accordion timbral textures – will gradually reveal recognizable motifs of J. S. Bach’s music, like in a rebus.
