Petits drames, toy piano & fixed media

Petits drames, for Toy piano & fixed media – Víctor Trescolí Sanz

Petits drames, se inspira en las pequeñas situaciones cotidianas que se vuelven pequeños dramas, no de forma específica, pero sí con cierta expresión. Hay siete pequeños movimientos, cada uno de ellos representa un estado de ánimo relacionado con estas situaciones, y el último es un collage de los otros seis, a modo de resurrección. La parte electrónica proporciona sonidos que se integran de forma perfecta con los sonidos del piano de juguete, ya que la mayoría de ellos proceden del mismo, procesados según las necesidades compositivas. Petits drames está compuesta originalmente para un piano de juguete de la marca francesa Michelsonne, de una octava de registro.

Toy piano part

The piece is writen for one performer, and was originally composed for a one octave register Michelsonne toy piano. But it can be played with other toy pianos that properly mix both acustic and electronic parts. The piano sounds one octave higher than is notated, and there is no extended tecniques.

Electronic part

To achieve the electronic part, a video/score has been designed. The score is displayed on a Laptop or Tablet, and the audio output of the video, should be sent to the soundboard, together with the connected microphone of the toy piano which amplifies this sound. Both must be balanced.
