Grain - Carré for String Quartet (10 min.)
by Salvador Torré (Mexico)
In the String Quartet has been practiced throughout the history of music the aspect of “Laboratory of forms, Methods, Styles, Compositional Substrates etc.” using old methods arises from the canonical imitative forms counterpoint or harmony, all combined with the today languages, the infinity of music we hear today from which, for me the Rock music is very important, as well as electroacoustic practices are evident in this quartet, mixtures and super-positions of elements in a space time either compacted or expanded, micro-imitations are now a days called “delays” or “echoes”. Different distortions caused by the ways of attacking, rub, pull hitting different parts of the instrument etc. All this adding an important element today: Improvisation, the interpreter then is enrolled in a state of freedom, but because we are speaking on classical music, this classical style provides the concept of structure, it brings a certain rigorous form. This generates an open-closed form, hence the title of this quartet "Dis-continuum" in a certain way the “continuous” is due to the improvisation and the “discontinuous” is associated to the form or structure proposed in the score.
