POLAR b is especially written for Ensemble Modelo62, it’s an adaptation/arrangement for 6 instruments of POLAR, a piece for 5 instruments composed in 2017.
Polar coordinates are used often in navigation as the destination or direction of travel; they can be given as an angle and distance from the object being considered.
In the piece, the instruments function as polar coordinates but tending and searching for weight and gravity.
Each instrument builds its relation and distance with the others, in a transparent synthesis of timbres, within a gradual polarization of the harmonic field.
The result is a net of fixed points with their attack and sustain, reiterated intervals, persistent and characterized rhythmical patterns in a continuous game of interrelation and juxtapositions.
