For violin solo (2009)
While studying a string instrument, it is desirable to avoid certain types of sounds. The idea is to use these “mistakes" as part as the composition. The use of tuning deficiencies, or incorrect control of the bow is incorporated to the piece as a musical element. The harmonic map is simple; it is based on chords distanced by thirds (B flat major, D minor, F major) with the common dominant of Augmented A.
Violin: Abderrahmán Anzaldúa
