Trouvé Concrète is scored for solo performer and fixed media. The title translates to ‘found concrete,’ and is intended to be an homage to the pioneers of musique concrète and electronic music. All sounds present within the work are produced by the performer or collected and manipulated field recordings. The intent of the work is to blend live performance on constructed instruments with the highly manipulated and stylized fixed media track.
The work is intended to evoke from the audience reminiscent emotions about nature and the vast expanse that is our world. There are elements present hearken to a more digital and industrial age which are placed in contrast to the spacious and more natural sounding sections of the work.
