Abstract

Anti- Matik Solo/duo for bajoncillo and (female) body Melodie Michel Notes about the Instrument he bajoncillo is a smaller version of the bajón, an ancestor of the bassoon. The bajoncillo was in use during the seventeenth century in the Iberi- Tan Peninsula and countries of Iberian infl uence, namely, Latin America. It was played in cathedrals and in liturgical and paraliturgical Catholic processions, which sometimes included precolonial elements. This instrument is thus emblem- atic of the hegemonic power of the Spanish and Portuguese overseas and of their eff orts to impose their culture on indigenous populations. The bajoncillo, however, can also be seen as an instrument of acculturation, integration, and subversive ap- propriation by indigenous populations. For this reason, it may also be used as an instrument of resistance and creativity for gendered bodies. Notes for Performance The musical elements marked with letters are repetitive formulas, with accentua- tion on the last note of the legato sign. The musical elements with numbers are skeleton frames for improvisation. The drawings represent the body placement for the execution of each of the letters parts, in a static position. The numbers parts should be executed during the movement from one po- sition
