"No desalinho triste de minhas emoções confusas..." (2011), which translates as "...in the sad disarray of my confused emotions..." is a musical composition for piano and live-electronics written by Felipe de Almeida Ribeiro (1980). This composition presents several characteristics of the composer's poetics, such as the tendency to value intuition and perception, to incline towards the use of non-teleological and non-narrative temporal and cognitive concepts, to reflect on the relationship between composition and self-knowledge, as well as to the instrument's choice: piano with extended techniques and quadriphonic live-electronics via MaxMSP. Aesthetically speaking, this work manifests influences of Fernando Pessoa and Karlheinz Stockhausen, more specifically on the piece's formal structure. In addition to the sounds naturally produced by the piano, the composer explores sounds that are artificially implemented, such as damped strings, pizzicati, harmonics and pin gliss. This dissertation will analyse and discourse on the aesthetic and technical issues mentioned above.
