Like Buckminster Fuller, reversible sweaters, or Mr. Potato Head, Ensemble Pamplemousse’s BLOCKS are a rearrangeable construction of elements. Prefab modules by eight composers are reconfigured into new structures of sonic architecture. As each block maintains its own internal logic, the listener is pulled forward through the linear unfolding of time. Intertwining patterns of material emerge and dissolve, connect, obstruct, and confer with each other, unveiling new angles of hearing each sonic unit.
The eight short works are performed in their original, through-composed form in the first half of the concert. During the second half, Pamplemousse passes through the compositions with metaphorical razor blade and scotch tape, taking bits and pieces freely from each piece to stitch together an uninterrupted set of unique, original, unimitable music.
The intent is to provide an environment where the ensemble executes its compositinoal and performance wishes continuously and thoroughly throughout the work process. The result is a truly unique performance, containing all the intricacy and possibility of a composition coupled with the spontaneity and excitement of an improvisation.
