New genres added to the spectrum of Haitian Classical music inspired by the “natif” concept
a) “Chantrèl” is a Haitian approach to chamber music and defines pieces written for a quartet
b) “Mizkla” or Mizik Klazik Ayisyen/Haitian Classical music, defines pieces written for a philharmonic orchestra
c) “Sètfwasèt” / 7 by 7, defines pieces written for a septet which is divided in 2 quartets—lead violin, violin, viola, cello and lead violin, viola, cello, double bass. Pieces have 7 movements of 49 bars and each theme may be approached differently by each quartet, thus the possibility of polytonality emerges.
Kantik Natif, Volim I — $50
contains 20 scores of Haitian folk music and one original composition written using the Natif concept. I have deconstructed the commonly used ii-V-I progression in most of our folk songs and new progressions have been suggested in this book.
Pa Amou / Because of Love — $150
14 original compositions of Chantrèl; 12 written for the violin and 2 for the flute
Video—Dyalòg executed by the DaPonte String Quartet
Video–Mizik Demafwa, recorded during the Strings of Hope concert at Center for Arts at the Armory on April 28, 2013
Audio—“Bèl Souvni” was recorded during one of our rehearsals for the concert mentioned above: Eve Boltax, lead violin; Serena Eades, violin; Christian Hoschek, viola; Scott McColl, cello.
I do take great pride in inserting the video clip of the first classical piece I have ever written and which was inspired by my muse Nicole E. The tempo of the piece is 88. It can be slowed down to 82 but no less.
