DRUM ODYSSEY

a science fiction cinematic  percussive experience

Poetry and science fiction literature are an historic source of material and inspiration for imagination and composition. During 2003 to 2006/07, I went into working exhaustively sound poetry with live drum set- percussion accompaniment.  It came from those years of exploration that in 2005-06, I created Drum Odyssey, a science fiction cinematic percussive experience.

Inspired by two science fiction literature works. The Demon´s Haunted World by American NASA scientist  and writer Carl Sagan, and  the great novel Solaris, by Russian science fiction writer Stanislav Lem.

 

The work is composed in seven movements.
