    Festival Ars Musica Bruxelles

    Stay here, stay near, stay Neascu is the first part of a triptych dedicated to Neascu Niculae, singer of ballads, gypsy violinist and founding member of the Taraf de Haïdouks (a group of gypsy musicians from Romania).

    The electroacoustic part of the work was composed quickly, in three days, in order to remain as close as possible to the sensations and forms of thoughts of the particular moment which constitutes the announcement of the death of a loved one.

    Sound material for the work was derived from recordings of an acoustic guitar that was tuned in a particular way and on which the strings were played with a bow of poor quality in order to impregnate the desired harmonic profiles into the recording. The first part of this triptych will be presented in its definitive version with a stringed instrument, in this case, the violoncello.

    As a buttress to the existing electroacoustic creation, the instrumental parts will act as a "flying buttress" for the morphological profiles and / or "intersecting ribs " for the harmonic profiles.

    Electroacoustic music: Stephan Dunkelman
    Arrangements of the version with violoncello: Sigrid Vandenbogaerde & Stephan Dunkelman
