About this composition:

CRESCENTE: this piece is built on a diversity of timbres laid "sound on sound", beginning in "invocativa" with a pocket trumpet that I played with the idea of the "shofar" (originally just a horn call), adding later some objects and a reverse cymbal.
later -in the second section, "evocativa"- the tonality gets fixed with vibes, piano and some violin layers. everything is processed with phasers, flangers and a rotary speaker emulator. along the whole piece a special scale related to hasidic/klezmer music i suggested in a non-overt manner.
