Tomás Virgós' L'electromechanique


L'electromechanique, by Tomás Virgós (1984)

Classical music from India provides the theoretical basis for the composition of L’electromechanique, a work by Tomás Virgós whose title alludes to the resulting concept of combining traditional (mechanical) instruments with electrical transformations. Divided into six sections, the work explores different rasa (emotional states), while it is supported by a harmonic and timbral basis that generates a consonant sphere around a fundamental tone and its many resonances.
