Enso, for trumpet and fixed electronics is a wonderful new work by Oren Boneh. You may have already heard his piece “Eclipse” and this work shows a nice progression into very complex electronics and more flexible and improvisatory solo parts. You can click the tab above that reads “Audio Sample” to listen to a portion of a live performance.
Note about electronics:
In performance, it is ideal for the performer to have the computer next to them where they can see the time and at a position in which they can easily press the space bar to pause the track (this only occurs once). It is also very possible for someone else to control the track but it is encouraged that the performer have some sort of timer. Due to the electronics being a fixed track, the performer must be flexible. They should be aware of where they are in relation to the track. The piece is made so that it does not necessarily matter if the trumpet and electronics align exactly, but it only matters that they finish together and align at important points.
