Toccata for synthesizer. Subtle differences.

A piece of microtonal music with four instruments that remember those of the stringed percussion type.Following the line of making music using a programming language for sound, I wanted to define two musical elements that were peculiar: a microtonal own musical scale, dividing the octave with 120 divisions as well as instrumental timbres that were also their own of the creation with computer and that were not imitations of the timbre of the physical instruments. . .If you are interested in more…See More

"Edgar, thank you very much for your opinions about my quartet. My intention has been to treat the four timbres of the instruments in a serial way in the sense of not giving predominance to any of them over the others, achieving these dense…"

Edgar Girtain replied to Ramon Capsada Blanch's discussion String Quartet. Isometries.
