Electronics Project Day 4: Marc Estibeiro

Day 4 of the Electronic Project finds us working with Marc from Stafford with much more conventional hours. I feel that everyone is starting to find their feet in what is a very alien way of working for all involved, and the day was very constructive with some beautiful spaces being explored…

Orbital Resonances No. 3

The title Orbital Resonances No. 3 is taken from the astronomical phenomenon of two or more bodies periodically lining up and exerting a combined gravitational pull, which can have a stabilizing or destabilizing effect on their orbits. One of the best-known orbital resonances in the solar system is the relationship that exists between three of Jupiter’s Galilean moons, Io, Europa, and Ganymede. This relationship was the original inspiration behind the piece. Originally scored for piano, flute, percussion and electronics, the piece was reworked for McFalls – hence the No 3 in the title.
