Between Logic and Rhetoric Ferdinando DeSena
Jorge Gomez Abrante, guitar; Elizabeth Galvan, marimba with cymbals

The distinction between logical and rhetorical arguments is clear. While logic is rooted in rigorous reasoning, rhetoric is the art of persuasive presentation and need not be logical in the true sense. Prime examples of such rhetoric are commercial advertising and political debate. However, this piece has nothing to do with this distinction. It was initiated during a conversation in 2009, with performers at the National Composer’s Seminar, Maynooth Ireland. That discussion took place on the National University campus while standing between the “Logic” and “Rhetoric” buildings. It seemed too good a title to let get away. This piece was premiered in 2010 at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh Scotland.
