Work description

The work was composed using the language SuperCollider and a "double synthesis" method. I developed a "primary" synthesizer to produce a recording as a basis for granular synthesis. Some selected positions within the buffer build the "refrain" of the rondo, whereas the "couplets" come from other randomly chosen sections. The parameters of the granulation process change from event to event.
