24 Loops is part of a cumulative music cycle initiated in 2006 with a piece for string quartet and which I developped as part of various projects. The principle of cumulative writing is to use electronic resources for stacking sequences played live.
In the pieces I've written on this principle all the music played by the musicians is frozen in time by a system of looping. The music created is the stacks of successive elements.
In this piece, a scenic process is added in order to create a kind of round where each musician turns around the percussions and "fill" the sound space.
After the 24th cell, the music can be improvised upon a continuous and free crescendo.
