Doppelgänger (2010)

for percussion, live electronics, and electroacoustic music

8 min

A doppelgänger is a ghostly, sinister double of a living person that haunts its counterpart. In Doppelgänger, for percussion and live electronics, this idea of doubling is explored in the electroacoustic component, which shadows the percussionist by reinterpreting and recontextualizing the acoustic material. The percussionist alternates between structured and improvisatory sections creating a flexible environment that allows a dialogue between acoustic and electroacoustic worlds.
