 Update me on new releases by Frounberg

Ivar Frounberg (b1950)

Ivar Frounberg has written orchestral works, works for large and small chamber ensembles as well as works utilizing interactive computer programs. In his compositions of recent years one finds a consistent musical concentration intended to heighten the listeners level of attention. Ivar Frounberg is assistant professor in electroacoustic music and computer music at The Royal Academy of Music in Copenhagen. He served as music coordinator of the International Computer Music Conference in Århus in 1994 and as chairman of the ISCM World Music Days in Copenhagen in 1996. In 1995 he received the Danish State Arts Foundation's three-year grant for the second time in his career as well as the prestigous Carl Nielsen Prize. Worlds Apart consists of five contrasting sections which might be considered five dramatic scenes. These sections are intertwined by formal symmetries: even numbered sections being non-metric while odd numbered sections are metric in varying degrees, ranging from the distorted polyrhythms of the first section to the claissical repetitions of the fifth. These five different worlds are mirrored in the inner worlds of the piece, the sonic material of which includes a French speaking John Cage, a summer morning in the composer's home town of Allerod as well as computer processed sounds held up against the acoustic harp with its biblical connotations. Worlds Apart was commissioned by Sofia Asuncion Claro and composed using the composer's own software L'oracle.
