Université D’Altitude 2016 — Interview

Hugo Warinsky interviewed yours truly at the end of Université D’Altitude International Workshop for Young Composers (Saint-Martin-Vèsubie, France, 2016), so here you can listen to me [trying to] explain the musical ideas behind my Vértigo (2016), which was wonderfully premiered back there by the amazing Ensemble Multilatérale.

Hope you enjoy or, at least, have fun!

New recording! — Vértigo (2016)

I am pleased to share the recording of the premiere of my piece Vértigo (2016), for Bass Flute, Bass Clarinet, Harp, Violin and Violoncello. It comes from the second concert of the Université D’Altitude 2016 — with Yann Robin and Raphaël Cendo as teachers and the Ensemble Multilatérale as visiting ensemble— that took place on July the 9th at the Eglise Notre-Dame de l’Assomption, Saint-Martin-Vèsubie, France.

I must thank all the musicians of the ensemble for their magnificent work during the whole Academy an also for their brilliant performance.

Ensemble Multilatérale:

Bass Flute: Matteo Cesari
Bass Clarinet: Alain Billard
Harp: Aurélie Saraf
Violin: Antoine Maisonhaute
Violoncello: Pablo Tognan

Conductor: Léo Warinsky

Programme notes for the premiere (French):

“Dans cette pièce, j’ai essayé de créer des séries d’objets sonores hybrides en travaillant sur leurs caractéristiques spectro-morphologiques. L’énergie physique déployée par les interprètes joue un rôle structurant dans cette pièce, créant a la fois un matériau sonore et le discours musical lui-même. Cela contribue à créer une énergie particulière et une atmosphère spéciale, dans laquelle les relations entre le objets sonores tendent à provoquer une sensation de vertige ou de désorientation.”

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

New recording — Hologram

There you go with the recording of my piece “Hologram” (2016), for Amplified Bass Flute, by Gregor Schulenburg, who premiered it amazingly last April 27th during Manufaktur für Aktuelle Musik‘s concert at Festival Mixtur 2016 in Barcelona (Fabra i Coats — Fàbricas de Creació).

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
