“STRATOS”- by Ruud Roelofsen- new composition dedicated to Parallel Asteroid

Ruud's Stratos excerpt pic

Composer’s note:

The idea of Stratos came from the name of the ensemble Parallel Asteroid. The piece is a largely stretched out collision. Always in the following order: Collision – Equilibrium – Vaporization. In this way all sounds are broken into smaller sounds.

The piece is partly improvised. With “Stratos” I want to collide both improvised and composed music into one in search for a sometimes freejazz-like texture in combination with sustain or “Nachklang”.
