Destin//Trouble Diego Bermudez Chamberland

Destin//Trouble is the second composition of an acousmatic work in three movements (Cartografía interior) that draws its inspiration mainly from Scandinavian mythology as told in Snorri Sturluson’s collection: the Edda, dated 1220. It is important to underline that the work does not try to materialize in a literal way this mythological universe, but rather proposes a free and personal sound adaptation. The result is a music that explores energy, continuous and fragmented temporality, and multiple spaces through various timbres and articulations, rather than it being a research centered on the mimicry or the literal recreation of this universe. The possible connections between some of the grand themes of Scandinavian mythology (natural forces, infinite territories and dynamism) and composition were explored during the creative process. These themes were subsequently transposed into the morphology of the sounds, the formal approach of the editing and the work of space.
