Ion Marmarinos ‘Jeux de Lignes’ Premiere with Roadrunner Trio

Ion Marmarinos has been selected to write a piece for ensemble Roadrunner Trio. This new work, Jeux de Lignes for accordion, clarinet and cello will be premiered on 26 January in the Uilenburgersjoel, Amsterdam (Nieuwe Uilenburgerstraat 91, 1011 LM Amsterdam, Netherlands).

Jeux de Lignes is inspired by falling stars – meteorites on the night sky. As seen from the earth, their short life is initially perceived as an illuminated line, which disappears in space. In reality, they are debris from a comet or asteroid, which disintegrate as they enter the atmosphere.
In Jeux de Lignes I combined both perspectives and pictured the night sky as a dome of stillness full of tiny scattered stars, colours, shapes of lights, and nebulae where flashes of lines are passing through.
The piece is in three sections: meteorites (birth and death of chords), journey in space (playfulness in fast dialogue, textures with different densities) and entering the atmosphere where high register pitch sets in the accordion or clarinet interact with sets of cello harmonics to create layers of constantly overlapping harmonies…until they eventually disappear.
