For two percussion players, recycled percussion and surround sound (written for Robyn Schulkowsky and Ezequiel Finger).
BLANCO DE PLOMO (2002) is part of a series of three pieces exploring the metaphoric nuances of color and sound.
Two custom-made marimbas were built using pans and pots tuned to covered 2 and a half octaves and used in the central section of the piece. The electronic part was composed for a four channels speaker array and featured recordings made by Varchausky of the running machinery at IMPA, an aluminum metal factory run by its workers that becomes a cultural center after business hours.
Commissioned by Festival de Música Contemporánea (curated by Martín Bauer).
Premiered at Sala Casacuberta, Teatro General San Martín, Buenos Aires, on November of 2002.
Percussion players: Robyn Schulkowsky, Ezequiel Finger.
