Carlotta Ferrari (b. 1975) and Carson Cooman (b. 1982) — Fantasia di collaborazione (2017) for organ
“Fantasia di collaborazione” (2017) was composed as a collaboration by Carlotta Ferrari and Carson Cooman. The work employs the Restarting Pitch Space modal harmony system. The music was composed as an “exquisite corpse” in six sections, beginning with Ferrari, and alternating several times back and forth between the two composers until Cooman composed the final section.
