Ricochet for guitar and electronics

Ricochet for guitar and electronics

Daniel Lippel, guitar.

Think of Peter Gilbert’s Ricochet as a sort of virtuoso guitar concerto sans orchestra. Instead, the composer applies a visceral electronic accompaniment of shifting textures—sounds that conjure up the din of a noise show rather than your average concert hall performance. In the end, the composition somehow straddles proper bowtie recital music and sound art through its extreme timbral palette.
