Yggdrasill (2014)

for piano and acousmatic sounds

Written for solo piano and pre-recorded acousmatic sounds, the work “Yggdrasill” proposes a microtonal sound universe to musically illustrate the homonymous legendary tree from Norse mythology together with the Nine Realms or different realities interconnected by that tree, which are populated by several mythical beings such as frost giants, elves, dwarfs, human beings and other assorted divinities. Above this sound universe we hear the wanderings of a piano and its 12-tone equal temperament, which interacts in surprising ways with the microtonal elements present in the acousmatic sounds.
