SOUNDS NEW FESTIVAL IN CANTERBURY

And God said, a new composition for seven voices by Sebastiano, will be premiered by Icarus Ensemble at Sounds New Festival in Canterbury on the 14th of May 2010.


‘Contrasting musical forces fight each other, consonances against dissonances, seven ecclesiastical modes confront an anarchy of pitches, the perfect fifth against the “Diabolus in Musica”, order versus chaos. From monodic unison an open closing chord blooms, a musical Big Bang, the music charts out the challenge between religion and science, from the first moment of creation to this very moment’ (from the program notes).
