Description:
The word "tangent" comes from the Latin tangens, meaning "touching". I have used the Spanish word “Tangente” to express the idea of combining two distinct musical cultures. One is that of the vocabulary of contemporary western music. The other is that of the popular and diverse world of the tango. Bringing these two together, like two lines touching is my goal in this work. The two instruments are similarly from two different worlds. My inspiration for this is the “Falsche Tango” project initiated by Visisonor Media Productions (www.visisonor.org). I was invited to “ go off at a tangent”, so to speak.
[In geometry, the tangent line (or simply the tangent) to a curve at a given point is the straight line that "just touches" the curve there. As it passes through the point where the tangent line and the curve meet, or the point of tangency, the tangent line is "going in the same direction" as the curve, and in this sense it is the best straight-line approximation to the curve at that point.]
