Chaoscaccia, a Gestural Process

Chaoscaccia, a Gestural Process

Chaoscaccia for Cello (2013), written in collaboration with Deborah Walker, allows us to explore gestural processes and generate patterns around the notion of ‘shift process’. The idea is to capture musical gesture as process and event, identifying its motivating idea. To this end, we use maps and space-time scripts to determine the interplay of variables and to shape dynamic events. We are interested in transitivity, in creating relationships between heterogeneous dimensions and pairings that generate exclusive or limitative linear models, in order to shift from one medium to another. Chaoscaccia explores movement, velocities, instability. What determines gesture, if not the stable result that it presumably produces?
Pascale Criton, composer

Chaoscaccia is a plural script created in collaboration with Pascale Criton. Based on unstable, continuous instrumental gesture, several coexisting states arise; their energy moves forward and shifts in a movement of constant rupture. I concentrate on the sound that the gesture produces, I don’t produce a gesture in response to a sound; constant energy, never touching the ground. Listening triggers a reaction.
Deborah Walker, cellist

This activity is part of the seminar Gilles Deleuze and the Geology of Creation.
