Composer: Francois Morel
Francois Morel (b. 1926) belongs to an important group of Quebec composers.
“Signal” was composed in 2007. “This piece is made up of five sections laid out in contrasting speeds: slow, fast, slow, fast, slow. Each of these sections opens with a motive of three to seven notes, these notes serving as a sort of signal….” It requires great technical dexterity and uses extended techniques, including multiphonics, and directed improvisation.
