e-quantum is a piece commissioned by Auditorio de Tenerife to be premiered by Quantum Ensemble. The acoustic and electronic materials of this piece are closely related. The gestural control of the sound is planned and notated in the music score so each instrumentalist triggers prerecorded audio samples that contain material played by another instrument of the ensemble.
