Program notes of the premiere (spanish):

Program notes (Spanish):

Franck Bedrossian define la Distorsión del sonido / Saturación del significado como el sonido que proyecta un exceso de significado y que genera ambigüedades, tanto culturales como emocionales. Para él, “la saturación acústica provoca confusión poética”. De una forma similar, he tratado de buscar una gradación en la energía sonora: desde la mayor violencia y complejidad de su química hasta la desnudez y la práctica ausencia de actividad. El título, poéticamente, refleja la búsqueda de una catarsis a través del caos y el exceso. En términos de color luz (RGB), el blanco se consigue al sumar todas las longitudes de onda del espectro, al contrario que en color pigmento (CMYK), en el que el blanco es la ausencia total de color. He buscado el blanco RGB, el negro CMYK y el mundo infinito entre ellos y sus opuestos.

The New Music Conflagration New Dates.

As I have been told, the concert by TNMC including my piece Jazz, and so, what? Histrionic Jazzy Phantasy (2011), that was first set up on June the 8th, has been postponed until January 2015.

The main causes are that a lot of composers and pieces were selected for the 2013-2014 TNMC New Music Concert Series and it was impossible to program them all.

Looking forward to have news from the guys of TNMC! See you in 2015!
