PROGRAMME

Melle Heij Ruminations
Duration: 15'
After suffering an untimely demise at the hands of you-know-what in 2020, my graduation piece Ruminations (2020) is now back for the 2022 edition of the Composers Festival. It is a solemn exploration of a dream world brimming with crystalline mountains of celestial color, desolate moors echoing with fading memories, and the menacing pulsations of obscured machinery.

Apollonio Maiello solastalgia
Duration: 7'
solastalgia is a piece about the extreme emtional distress due to an enviromental change. In this case, the enviromental status is translated to a simple harmonic progression. Drenched with melancholy and the feeling of loss, this piece is an auditive rendering of the negative feelings associated with change of a seemingly safe condition.

Philip Przybyło Meduza for amplified string trio and electronics
Duration:
 20'
Meduza is an aggressive string trio which exploits the metallic and physical aspects of strings. In combination with the electronics, the piece opens with a raw explosion of energy birthed from varying bow speed and pressure and closes with faint echoes of a love song by the French- Baroque composer Michel Lambert. Meduza is the second in a series of pieces written about squishy and floppy creatures, the first one being Ameba from 2019.
