(neo)liberal systems is a series of pieces around the paradox of exercising an almost endless freedom within a context that tolerates it, but at the same time it assimilates it in different systems that manage and reduce it to an unitary function and signification.
  In all the pieces there is a radical differentiation between the materiality produced by the musicians and the ruling system. There no conventional score showing to the musicians what they should play, but instead, they have the liberty of decide (previously or not,  negotiated or not) their own material, instruments and way of playing.
  With the subtitle of “ascent”, this third piece of the series takes place in a system which imposes a gradual and endless ascent: in the pitch range of the live performer and in the real-time transposition of it through the live electronics.
In a sense,
(neo)liberal systems are pieces which take place simultaneously in the genres of free improvisation and written fixed music, not especially as a hybrid between them, but more as a movement that oscillates between freedom and absolute determination.
