A powerful, brooding piece in minimalist style,
A powerful, brooding piece in minimalist style, Acentos Oscuros (Dark Accents) is a new departure for me. I wanted to try to compose a reasonably extended piece of minimalism but make the necessary rhythmic shifts by means of accents across the bar rather than continually changing the metre. Hence the ear picks up a lot of patterns of 5 that are actually placed across an even beat of 2. Without necessarily trying for a dark atmosphere the piece naturally evolved in that mood. There are episodes that are lighter and more playful but the primal power and obscure quality pervade much of themusic.!
