Quartetto Terrestre has born in the summer of 2010.
In that period Alessandro Fedrigo wrote some compositions for this band.
In the last years his compositional research affected the intervallic way of composing, a tecnique that uses mostly intervallic structures instead of chords or scales.
“Space Jazz Astro Bop”, “Il Cerchio”, “Hagelin” and “Protone” are experiments with this tecnique.
Other tunes are more conventional, here the goal is to develope form and orchestration, this is very clear in some composition as “Daltonica Notte” (dedicated to the poet Thomas Transtromer), “Bipede” (this is dedicated to Charlie Parker, the melody is made with al the notes of “Anthropology”), and “Sim Gun”, wich is dedicated to Charles Mingus and has a “spiral melody” but in a tonal context.
The last tune, “Il Compositore Compone”, is a breef study on atonal music of the 20th century.
