Premiere of Orbits for piano and tape at Sigulda | Latvia

Orbits for piano and tape got its premiere at Sigulda, Latvia by the composer and pianist Gundega Smite.
The piece is dedicated to Gundega Smite. The performance took place at Baltais Fligels Concert Hall on 2 July 2014, 7:00 pm. The piece was composed during a long period of four years with many starts and stops. I very big thank to Gundega for believing in this and pressing me to make it happen!

Orbit is the curved path of a celestial object or spacecraft around a star or planet. The eccentricity of the path and speed of the moving objects can vary. In this respect, the sound is treated in this piece as a moving object. Electronic and piano parts can be considered as two celestial objects moving either in regular trajectories or deviating from circularity.

Alter Ego Premiere by Athens State Orchestra | Athens

Alter Ego for large orchestra was commissioned by the State Orchestra of Athens in Greece and was composed at Boston in 2011. The musical material is based on spectral analysis of recitation in a whispering mode of the poem Katedrāle by American – Latvian poet Gunars Salins. A second layer consisted of isorhythmic processed (talea) material functions as a point of reference. The physical material is under constant transformation through the use of digital filters and it is presented by the orchestra through new orchestrational perspectives each time.

In me – there is the Cathedral. In me – the whole kingdom of heaven. In me – the world’s beginning and end. And also you. (Gunars Salins)

Parenthesis premiered by Lorraine Symphony Orchestra | France

Paragraph/Parenthesis for Orchestra got its premiere at  Metz Arsenal Concert Hall by Orcheste National de Lorraine (ONL) under the direction of Jacques Mercier on 11-7-2011. The piece was performed as a part of the composition workshop Acanthes. This piece was composed after the poem “since feeling is first…” by e.e.cummings. A special set of software tools were developed in order to compute and organize the massive stream of data that constitutes the core-structure of the piece. The fundamental idea of the piece is the construction of a multi-leveled isorhythmic talea that controls and drives various melodic elements and harmonic aggregates in a set of spectral bands. Since such a parametric system is very unstable, a large number of experiments were performed in order for the final material to be selected, formed, and refined. 

[…] for life’s not a paragraph. And death i think is no parenthesis e.e.cummings

Anamorphosis premiere by Nieuw Ensemble | UK

Anamorphosis for 11 musicians is premiered at Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. Anamorphosis |ˌanəˈmôrfəsis| Anamorphosis is a distorted projection or drawing that appears normal when viewed from a particular point or with a suitable mirror or lens. This concept was transferred to the sound domain and a set of special software applications was developed in order to run experiments and then select and refine the material used for this piece. The anamorphic procedures consisted of warping a given music material by catoptric means. A large set of suitable mirrors were utilized. Various amounts of a two-dimensional distortion were applied, depending on the angle and the exact position of the mirrors on the Cartesian plane.

Nieuw Ensemble | Direction Bas Wiegers
Produced by HCMF | Muziek Centrum Nederland | NFPK+
