Cristiana Palandri New Work for Oboe and Electronics


Cristiana Palandri's work °OSC° for oboe and electronics received five performances across Switzerland in Bern, Lucerne, Basel, Olten and Geneva in October 2023. The performances were given by Vicente Moronta (oboe) and Erwin Fonseca (electronics) as part of a production called Songs of Reeds featuring six composers. In three movements—Limbo, Paradiso, Ghiaccio—Palandri's °OSC° toys with our sense of hearing. Through precise micro-oscillations, the piece unravels a tapestry of sonic apparitions and ephemeral sound phenomena, integrating the oboe into an intricate web of frequencies and beats; a virtually indistinguishable and infinite union of resemblances.
