Left Edge Percussion, Tower Music Premiere – Nov 8

November 8 @ 7:30 pm

Bertolozzi approached the French government (six times!) and received permission to sample the surfaces of the Eiffel Tower. After seven years of planning, fundraising and sweat later, Tower Music became a reality, reaching #11 and #16 respectively on the iTunes Classical and Billboard Classical Crossover charts.

The score for Tower Music on the Eiffel Tower itself is written out in standard notation so it can be performed live by c. 100 percussionists, its intended objective; a live performance directly upon the Eiffel Tower is currently in development for the 2024 Paris Olympics, but is far from a “done deal” at this point. The audio files of the music are electronically realized “studio” versions of the music played back by Finale Music Notation linked to the samples.

The arrangement faithfully reproduces the music within the context of a percussion 5tet, i.e.: cymbals standing in for fence crashes, bass drums for booms on the Tower legs with a log, glockenspiel for pings on a pipe, etc.

This arrangement is important to Bertolozzi as it will bring live performances of the work into the concert hall, since live performances on the Eiffel Tower itself will be an extremely rare (if ever) event. It gives longevity and presence to the music by allowing live audiences to enjoy live performances in an authentic, composer-created arrangement.
