Chronomundo

Program notes

ChronoMundo is the first work in a cycle of three acousmatic compositions (Cartografía intérior) drawing its inspiration from Scandinavian mythology as featured in Snorri Sturluson's collection “the Edda,” from 1220. It is important to emphasize that the cycle does not try to materialize this mythological universe in a literal way, but offers more of a free and personal sonic adaptation. On the other hand, the main themes attached to this mythology, including natural forces, infinite territories, the movement from nature to culture, dynamic conquest, all initiated by an unforgettable cosmogony have all found their place in the composed musical world. The multiplicity, vastness and complexity of the worlds that are connected to this mythology were given voice throughout the composition in several key aspects: the morphology of sounds and their evocative possibilities, the formal approach towards editing and the connective interplay, and a smooth and expansive temporal approach to evoke a timeless universe as well as a scope of spatiality corresponding to the proposed sound design.
