Hr​ö​nir (2018)

2018, Small ensemble, improvisation

Hrönir is an experiment about the coincidence of events that influence each other transcending time and consciousness. This experiment starts with the recording of an improvised solo. Then, a second improviser records a new track while listening to the first. This second improviser can choose to be influenced by the first one and relate to it in any way—dialoging, complementing, contradicting, ignoring, etc. Next, a third improviser does the same but only listening to the discourse of the second improviser and not the first one. Then a third, fourth, fifth… always using as a reference only the previous take. In this way, some musical impulses become hidden to the posterior musicians. Lastly, all improvisations are synchronized and mixed together, revealing synchronicities that were hidden to the very musicians.

“Hecho curioso: los hrönir de segundo y de tercer grado —los hrönir derivados de otro hrön, los hrönir derivados del hrön de un hrön— exageran las aberraciones del inicial; los de quinto son casi uniformes; los de noveno se confunden con los de segundo; en los de undécimo hay una pureza de líneas que los originales no tienen. El proceso es periódico: el hrön de duodécimo grado ya empieza a decaer.” - José Luís Borges: Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius.
