Ion Marmarinos new orchestral work Par Ciel will be premiered on Thursday 10 October by the University of Campinas – UNICAMP Symphony Orchestra, Brazil, conducted by Christian Schulz.
The concert is part of the 2019-2020 São Paulo Contemporary Composers Festival, for which 4 months ago Ion Marmarinos was selected to compose a piece for orchestra.
Par Ciel (by sky), a wordplay on partiels (partials), is inspired by the rain. Structured on rhythmic sequences in diminution as well as on combinations of different registers of harmonics derived from the pitches of the motifs utilised, the music reflects various sounds of drops illustrated initially as accidentally occurring tones.
I perceived drops of rain as particles of a larger water mass and I compared them to partials of sound. Their occurrences as permutations of tones initially feel and sound arbitrary. However, they progressively create their own structure, duration, density of texture, intensity, sound(s) and patterned formations.Ion Marmarinos
Composers Edition is proud to present a catalogue of Ion Marmarinos’ works, to which Par Ciel will be added shortly after its premiere.
