Borra de vidala is a piece for harpsichord, gyroscope and live electronics and was commissioned by harpsichordist, pianist and performer @elena_kuhrgina.

The idea of the piece was born from the questioning my self about the relationship between the music I like to hear and at the same time having the task to compose for an specific instrument. With this in mind, the piece became into a deconstruction of folkloric rhythms (specifically the “vidala”) and at the same time it is an expansion of the instrument sound through gestures and movements captured by the gyroscope to process in real-time all audio sources coming from the harpsichord: not only on its sound, but also placing the chords and notes in different position of a quadraphonic system.
