Research project, musical score, textile and sound installation; 2020–2021

I developed a system to translate patterns from an ancient Peruvian textile into a composition for three grand pianos. The way that the notes of the pianos interact between them is based on the way to play the Siku (an old Andean musical instrument where a scale is divided in two instruments and completed only when they are played between two musicians). A version of this piece was adapted to work as a sound installation played extremely slow and rotating between three speakers generating an atemporal effect.

Presented as a sound installation:
South Explorer (Rotterdam, 2020), Charlois Speciaal (Rotterdam, 2020).
