« Within an orgiinal aestthetic proposal, Renée Pietrafesa Bonnet brings us next to her creation with works for piano, organ, instrumental and vocal groups, symphonic orchestra, mixed works for instruments, voices and electronic means, improvisations and electroacoustic works ».
Several works presented in this album belong to a set of chamber music pieces, little pieces of intimate mood, in which different instruments blend with the synthesizer or tape, in order to achieve a totally expressive result.
The synthesizer allows to establish, in a quite accessible way, "le lien" between a new technology and purely instrumental practice. It is used and played in this work in real time,.like any other instrument or processed at runtime with other instruments or, lastly, allowing a certain and elaborated sonority in electroacoustic music studio.
From rhytmic point of view, some pieces (A 3, Travesuras, TanMilonCan, etc.) contain several passages in whichquick syncopated displacements of accent appear, based on rythms like candombe, tango and milonga. Interpreters are allowed, when suitable, to impovise from different proposals, vary them and even modify them during execution.
It is in tha aesthetic axe of a synthesis among the endless possibilities of the electroacoustic and of the instrumental execution, the perfectly determined one and the undetermined one, the frontal and the spacial perception, where I find a specially fertile soil to express the content.
