Danzas Mecánicas

2010

for wind quintet

live recording by Solar Winds

program note:

Danzas Mecánicas was composed in 2010 and revised in 2011. The piece consists of three short movements, each based on traditional Argentine dance forms: tango, vals, and milonga. The fundamental rhythms of these dances are broken up and toyed with, but are still featured in recognizable form in each movement. The piece was inspired by some music I heard being performed by street musicians at a artisans market outside my Recoleta residence during a summer studying in Buenos Aires.
