Dialogues

In my project ‘Dialogues’ I have my music dialoguing with other instruments. I call this composition process ‘modular composing’, in which I build a new composition on top of an existing composition. I use the existing cello solo tracks, sometimes with minimal adaptations, and I compose for a second instrument on top. The meaning of the original cello voice changes because of this dialogue, with as a result a new composition. Especially the realisation that both versions, solo and dialogue, can coexist, without competition, is very special, and a new experience for me. I applied the modular composing process on four pieces until now, of which two with violin and two with oboe. The musical experience and result were in all four cases equally strong for me, for the featuring artist and for the recording engineer.

The Angel of 1985 (Dialogue with violin)

Stijn Kuppens composed a violin part, completing the cello solo version of ‘The Angel of 1985’, played by violinist Hugh Desmond. The result is amazingly enough a whole new composition, standing aside the coexisting solo version. The title reveals a tribute to a 13-year-old child, that didn’t survive a natural disaster, but managed to send a very important message to the world: you can still mean something to others, even in the worst circumstances.
