About this composition:

interferences III [1983-IV], for chamber ensemble and computer generated sounds

There is an axial note, Db, out of which some sounds escape occasionally, only to return to it. All other sounds are stratified around these, and the entries of instruments are somewhat free, in a quasi canonic imitation. The tape part was realised with a Synclavier II Digital Synthesizer at the Electronic Music Studio, McGill University.

The piece was written for the Agrupación Nueva Música/Rosario [ANM/R] and its conductor, composer Dante Grela. Interferences III is dedicated to them.

Premiere: August 14, 1983, during a concert organized by Asociacion de Amigos de la Escuela de Música and the Facultad the Humanidades y Arte UNR, at the Salón Italia, Rosario. Chamber Ensemble conducted by alcides lanza.

Canadian premiere: with the group GEMS, during the Festival of Canadian Music, organized by Carleton University, at the Ecole Secondaire de Lasalle, Ottawa, on February 27, 1984.
