Victoria Guitar Trio with Adrian Verdejo, Michael Dias and Bradford Werner perform Temporal Waves by Vancouver composer Jordan Nobles.
As I prepare for a trio concert in Vancouver this weekend I thought I’d share one of the pieces we are playing (plus I couldn’t find anything else to post!). We have an entire programme of new music by Canadian composers but I love the modulating meters and beautiful harmonies in this one. Metric modulation slowly shifts the meter based on new rhythmic figures that occur and become the primary rhythmic element. Nobles goes full circle in this one eventually ending up at the original meter and tempo. From a concert in Victoria, Canada on June 25th, 2014. – Bradford (your host here on the site)
