for blandine is a piece for harpsichord & electronics

consisting of a probabilistic transition between

two very close tunings.

one tuning is played on the upper manual of the harpsichord,

the second one on the lower manual of the harpsichord 

— inspired by L. Couperin's unmeasured preludes notations

— an hommage to B. Verlet

excerpt of the harpsichord part (not properly tuned though)

(performed by Maciej Skrzeczkowski)

electronics & tuning scheme of the piece: 

the electronics may be played simultaneously or after the harpsichord part

(full recording in-progress)

excerpts of the score

the piece raises questions about transcription, interpretation and performance, and related to the merging of algorithmic/probabilistic and early music logics. 

see the excerpts of the score on the right: same page but in different versions: 

1) bare output of the algorithm

2) composing phrases (non-repeating groups of notes) and assigning pitches to each keyboard (yellow= upper manual/green= lower manual)

3) a reading of the score by the performer, Maciej Skrzeczkowski
