Conceived as an antiphonal dialogue between an oboe, a lamellophone, and a series of dynamically evolving sine tones, "Fauxboebourdon" explores the recombinant potential of overlapping ratios and proportions through the sonic filter of timbre and its digital transformations. Specifically, each of the three timbral sources of the work is subjected to its own process of automation, by means of which its pitch- and rhythm-based qualities are separately and systematically processed. The result is a tapestry of imbricated electro-acoustic timbres, the autonomous orbital logics of which blend with one another while nevertheless remaining perceptually distinct (both the score and the MaxMSP patch for "Fauxboebourdon" are available here).
