Aleksandra Vrebalov
Echolocations (2016)
Echolocations (2016)

for 3 groups of instruments in spatial formations, 7’

Aleksandra Vrebalov’s Echolocations owes its form to the twentieth century “open score” tradition, where unspecified musicians play usually fairly unspecified music, notated in a concise and shorthand format. In this case, Vrebalov combines her notated harmonic framework with detailed written instructions on register, dynamic control, and movement of sound throughout the space. Echolocations premiered in 2016 at the NEXT Festival of Emerging Artists in New York.
