Product details

Renascence refers not only to a musical awakening, but to a spiritual one; whereby the human emotions are unleashed outward into the world. The piece is essentially polymodal (set on a tonal centre of C), incorporating pitch material taken directly from the Phrygian mode (or third mode generated from the major scale) and closely related scalar variations. This includes its hemitonic pentatonic skeleton of C, D flat, F, G and B flat, and almost identical (apart from the substitution of an A natural or major sixth for an A flat or minor sixth) Dorian flat 2 mode (or second mode generated from the ascending melodic minor scale). Many compositional techniques are explored, with a special emphasis on rhythm. Much of the principle structure is founded around three bars of 5/16 (3+2) followed by one of 7/16 (3+2+2), to then be intentionally broken up by a 12-bar interlude of 10/16 (3+3+2+2). A consequent 'un poco piú mosso' 3/8 refrain intended as a building block for intensity, while the following repeated 4/8 and 7/16-bar 'montuno' or 'guajeo'(piano comping), providing the accompaniment for a notated form of the improvised open solo section of Afro-Latin style composition.
