Sheet Music: Score
Antumbra : for percussion and fixed audio / Melody Eötvös.
by Melody Eötvös (2022)
Backing track for performance and rehearsal available here.
The antumbra (from Latin ante, "before") is the region from which an occluding body appears entirely within the disc of a light source. Most often associated with the sun and moon, an observer in the antumbra region would experience an annular eclipse, in which a bright ring is visible around the eclipsing body. If the observer moves closer to the light source, the apparent size of the occluding body increases until it causes a full umbra.
The three movements (I - Suspended, II - Canon, III - Time) of this composition are a play on this phenomena, where the percussionists part mostly functions as an occluding body and the electronic track drifts and projects around the acoustic percussion like a light source responding to a solid object.
