from chamber works, released June 26, 2015

The composition ‘maart ’98’ consists of six parts: violin 1 and 2, viola 1 and 2, violoncello 1 and 2, which after their synchronized start will develop independently from each other. There is no score.

The glissandi that have to be realized within their given duration, are well defined only at their beginning and ending situation concerning frequency and bowing techniques. The resulting sounds consist of the constantly changing relations between the movements of frequency, color, and dynamic gradations. This for each instrument separately as well as for (the sound of) the whole ensemble. The notated pitches are to be played as starting and ending points of the glissandi, they are not supposed to be perceived as sustained pitches.

The sound objects will be separated from each other by ‘a short breath’, although one should not perform a real pause or create a too articulated silence.

The six parts differ slightly in time length. The performance will last approx. 11 minutes, whereby ♪ = 72.

Dynamic changes are not specifically notated; the frequency, color and bowing movements will create a nuanced dynamic richness, which the performer relates to an implied mp-mf.
