Francisco Alvarado Basterrechea about his piano piece “cli cli cli tla”

„Beethoven’s 5th symphony has always been an exemple of how can you make the best out of musical material. The very well known motif of the first mouvement of the symphony is used in many different ways, continuously bringing something new to the musical discours.
In this piece I tried to isolate this motif and present it in my own style, starting by the sound itself, as the piano is prepared with different objets. The motif is stretched or compressed, forming patterns in a way that’s impossible to recognise the original music.
