TuttleHead
movements I-III

This piece is inspired by the sense of natural harmony of Newyorker artist Richard Tuttle. It might sound organic, meditative.
I chose seven octagons that he made to compose
the seven movements of TuttleHead. Irregular octagons whose 8 angles make a total of 1080, what is translated in 1080 x per movement.
This is an excerpt to be played by the Jack Quartet in NYU on May 1st 2011.
The whole piece will include a video-art.
- The musical discourse has no pulses or metric accents
- Barlines mean just guides or meeting points.
- No vibrato, just sounds as pure as possible.

In this movement, the sounds have no pitch. The clef


shows the four strings, and a tetragram
(strings) substitutes the staff. The strings are stopped by the left hand, so that there's no other sound
but the bow fretting; in these movements, the left hand will be placed on the strings at their high
range (H), close to the bridge, or their low range (L), close to the tuning pegs.

In this movement, indications in grey show the moments in which


a leader gives the pulses and entrances to the rest of the group.
