Œuvres ouvertes | Improvisations

Sound tracks

Open instrumentation and video interface, written in collaboration with Matan Gover. Premiered by ensemble Aka, live@CIRMMT series, Tanna Schulich hall Montreal. 2019 7′ Ca

Written for Ensemble Aka. A graphical game is projected to the musicians and the audience. The game interface presents symbols that approach the musicians and is inspired by Harmonix?s Guitar Hero. Each symbol represents a different musical element – musical gesture, short phrase, a note and so on. The musicians must interpret the symbols in a precise moment according to the animation, while also adding their own musical interpretations in an improvised manner. This piece is a collaboration between Ofer Pelz and Matan Gover.


Open instrumentation and electronic interface. Premiered by ensemble Aka, live@CIRMMT series, Tanna Schulich hall Montreal. 2019 7′ Ca

In Swedish, ?viskleken? means ?whispers? and is referred to the Telephone Game. This piece is influenced by this famous game – a message which is repeated and mutated at every repetition. The piece deals with improvisation and imitation for two players and electronics. Written for Ensemble Aka, the two musicians, led by a computer operator, try to imitate each other?s musical phrases over and over with the expected mistakes on subsequent repetitions, resulting in increasing musical complexity over the course of the game.
