    uniE603 IMPROVISACIÓN Nov 081530 Dec 0105 -for Computer- (2011) by Haladhara Dasa
    Es un grupo de composiciones para computadora (Nov 08 Nov 15 Nov 30 Dic 01 y Dic 05 del 2011) que no tienen relación entre ellas pero que un poco "a la fuerza" se han convertido en una sóla pieza. Forman parte de mis primeras investigaciones en torno al software MAX. #audio #COMPUTER MUSIC #Computer #ClassicalWW

    Computer Music. Each time the robot performs it, small differences are heard. Here we have the "frozen" version. But if you have MAX in your computer I can send you the patch. This version was "performed" by my computer on 31.08.2012. #audio #Computer Music #Computer #Contemporary #ClassicalWW
    uniE603 SONGS OF THE MARUTS In ITALY (2009) by Haladhara Dasa (a Wave-Constellation composition)
    The Song of the Maruts in Italy. The Maruts are gods of different types of winds and clouds of the sky, in the ancient MahaBharata´s land mythology. This is a piece for Wind Orchestra. Is one of my Wave-Constellation compositions when it was in its development stage. Nice discoveries were made there and if you listen attentively you will get them. The composition of this one let me completely exhausted to the point of total disorientation when I finished and at the next day I woke up in a pitiful state which lasted some days. But it was worthy! LA CANCIÓN DE LOS MARUTS en ITALIA es una obra para Orquesta de Vientos. Se trata de una de mis composiciones dentro de la metodología OLA-CONSTELACIÓN, cuando estaba en su fase de desarrollo. Contiene importantes avances de esa metodología y se requiere una audición extremadamente atenta para descubrirlas. #audio #OLACONSTELACIÓNWW
    uniE603 16th Constellation (2015) -definitive Update!- by Haladhara Dasa
    Ten months! Yes, ten months –on a daily basis- I am working on this composition. I am somewhat fatigued. I am going to die. Yep. I just have one fear: to confront one of the universal authorities, immediately after my physical death, and to not be able to say I was working to the 100% with the abilities they gave me, namely this desire and capacity to compose. Because I am planning to ask another round to improve what I already accomplished. A new birth in a better society environment (maybe a higher planet where science and music are far better than here), with a better body (intelligence and senses) to improve my compositional tasks. (Will be Karlheinz Stockhausen there?) Can be music a tool for the improvement of human capacities? I believe so. It`s difficult to understand this when our society is pushing entertainment as the purpose of art, especially music. But from my esoteric practices and readings I understood this is not the only case music is meant to be. Not at all. There are higher dimensions. And the Vedas told us I cannot go in there unless my psychology is already trained to be there. Hopes. Hopes. And work! Anyway, please hear this definitive update of the 16th Constellation belonging to my Sarva Bijam Tad Aham (“Of all that exists know that I am the seed”). This constellation of sounds is 12 minutes long. I promise you a journey through some inner constellations of sound. Just put your headphones and stare a red flower vase while listening surrounded by complete silence and stillness. Ea! Haladhara Dasa PS: Now it´s time to compose the 18th constellation. It is dominated by Trumpet and Bassoon. The 16th was dominated by Flute (accompanied by Oboe, English Horn, Clarinet mainly) and Violoncello (accompanied by BassClarinet and BassTrombone mainly). Then you can guess the Trumpet –in the 18th constellation- will be accompanied by Trumpet 2, Horns, Tuba and the Bassoon by Bassoon 2, Clarinet, BassClarinet. Yes you do. Ea! #audio #Contemporary Classical #MusicWW
    uniE603 DISCIPLINE for a MELODIC COMPOSITION (2013) by Haladhara Dasa (for a course on composition)
    DISCIPLINE for a MELODIC COMPOSITION (2013) It is a collection composed in a week, for a college seminar to show how from short texts we design the rhythm, then the melody and from that we get the harmonies, the bass, the accompaniment and next the introductory, middle and conclusive setions of a whole instrumental composition. Texts are from Bruce Lee, Graham Greene, Elizabeth Kolbert, etc. and it became so funny to see how, chosen almost randomly, I could develop them to illustrate my compositional points. + "Creo que cuando una pareja se casa, pueden llegar al cielo o vivir en el infierno" (Bruce Lee) "When a couple gets married, they can arrive to heaven or to live in hell". + "Ese fue el apogeo de aquellos días, el día del grito. No estaba solo" (John Banville: novelista, MEFISTO, -1986-) "That was the apogee of those days, the day of the scream; I wasn´t alone". + "En ocasiones, he visto a búfalos espantar a los tigres de sus presas..." (Jim Corbett: cazador de tigres, MI INDIA, -1952-) "Occassionally I have seen buffalos scaring out tigers from their preys"- + "Venza, dioses del cielo, os lo suplico, venza la esposa a todas las esposas..." (Séneca: dramaturgo griego, MEDEA, -Antes de Cristo-) "Win, gods of heaven, I beg you, may win the wife to all wives". + "Ninguna de las hermanas de Lisey era inmune a los placeres que proporciona meter cizaña" (Stephen King: novelista de terror, LA HISTORIA DE LISEY, -2006-) "None of Lisey´s sisters were inmune to the pleasures obtained from evil rummoring". 2.2=) divisiones de 5 y de 7. + "Prefiero ofrecer mi vida en sacrificio que serle necesario a alguien" (E.M. Cioran: filósofo, ESE MALDITO YO -1987-) "I prefer to offer my life in sacrifice than to be needed by someone". + "Saben lo suficiente para convertir un tubo de escape en un mortero" (Graham Greene: espía y novelista, EL AMERICANO TRANQUILO -1955-) "They know enough to transform a cars tube into a weapon". + "Cualquiera puede dar órdenes, pero darlas de modo que otros las acepten es una cualidad y ésa era la cualidad de Espartaco" (Howard Fast: escritor, ESPARTACO -1951, escrita en la cárcel-) "Anyone can give orders but to give them in such a way others can accept them is a quality and it was Espartaco´s quality". + "Las especies que ya se han retirado hacia los polos o, como el sapo dorado, hacia las cumbres de las montañas, ya no tendrán a dónde ir" (Elizabeth Kolbert: periodista y escritora, LA CATÁSTROFE QUE VIENE -2006-) "Those species already retired into the poles or, those as the golden frog, to the peaks of the mountains, they won´t have were to go". #audio #Música de Textos #Contemporary #ClassicWW
    uniE603 NAKSHATRANAM AHAM SHASHI -Piano- by Haladhara Dasa (a Wave-Constellation composition)
    "Amongst the stars I am the Moon", says Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita. The analogy is that no matter how many stars there are in the nocturnal sky, when the full moon rises, it overcomes them in brilliance. This one was conceived for Vibraphone and Marimba but I wanted a sharper sound so I made this piano version where you hear clearly the rhyhtm and the intervals. This is a Wave-Constellation composition. "Entre las Estrellas Yo soy la Luna" cuyo título en sánscrito, es parte del Bhagavad Gita, cuando Krishna le declara a Arjuna que -en comparación de un cielo estrellado- la luna hace palidecer a las estrellas por más numerosas que sean en la noche. Esta versión en piano muestra muy claramente la sonoridad interválica de la pieza, mejor que en su versión original de Vibráfono y Marimba. Es una composición que utiliza el método OLA-CONSTELACIÓN. #audio #OLACONSTELACIÓN #Contemporary #ClassicalWW
    uniE603 KAPILA -for Clarinet and String Quartet- (2009) by Haladhara Dasa (a Wave-Constellation composition)
    KAPILA is a WAVE-CONSTELLATION composition. His sketches are ready for a dissertation on compositional matters. Kapila is the name of the son of Devahuti, who was married to Kardama Muni. All they lived in the forest, Kardama being a powerful mystic yogi. When Kardama anounced his retirement from the mundane world to go back into spiritual practices, his wife Devahuti asked her son Kapila to teach her about the ultimate goal of life. Kapila was an incarnation of Krishna and stayed with her teaching about Sankhya Yoga, the yoga which discriminates between matter and spirit. All that is contained in the Shrimad Bhagavatam, a very nice literature. Read it! #audio #Instrumental MusicWW
    uniE603 Bijam Tad Aham 6th Constellation -9 minutes- (26.May.2015) by Haladhara Dasa
    This is the 6th Constellation, from Bijam tad aham (“I am the seed”). This little piece (9 minutes) is scored for Oboe, English Horn, 2 Bassoons, 2 Trumpets, 2 Trombones, Harp, Piano, Violin and 2 Violas: 13 performers. It was composed starting from a pure rhythmic design. This design is repeated three times but –naturally- the rhythms become affected by different instrumental presentations: melodies (if such things exist here), harmonies and textures (arpeggios, repeated notes, trills,...) in each cycle. This results in a kaleidoscopic presentation of that rhythmic design. In the first cycle, for each pulse a particular instrument is assigned. In the second cycle two pulses are given. In the third cycle three pulses. That means the orchestra starts very "pointillistic" progressing towards a more linear -but not much- flow. Also, there are different groupings of instruments. Sometimes the 2 bassoons are paired with the oboe and English horn and sometimes the same 2 bassoons are paired with the 2 violas. Or the 2 trombones are paired with the 2 trumpets and later on these trombones get along the Harp and Piano. This way the timbrical quality in this work is always shifting. Lots of colours. I said melodies (if such things exist here) because in this composition I present a musical thinking based no longer in the old concept of melody supported by harmony or melody-against-melody (counterpoint). Nevertheless I use the basic concepts attached to those ideas. Rather, the intellectual/aesthetic concept here is of an orchestral organic unity. We hear an orchestra where each participant is as important as any other. Hope you enjoy this piece! Haladhara Dasa COMPOSER #audio #Contemporary Classical #MusicWW
    uniE603 Bijam Tad Aham -10th Constellation, Extensions 1,2,3,4 (2014)- by Haladhara Dasa
    Here it is -with its full 4 extensions- the 10th Constellation. Orchestrated for a chamber orchestra, it belongs to the same family of constellations of the 8th, which is already published here in Sound Cloud. You can hear the 8th and next the 10th, for a larger experience; I strongly recommend that: the musical material of the 10th is somehow enhanced through that listening. Both constellations belong to the same composition Sarva Bhutanam Bijam Tad Aham (2014) -a sanskrit verse meaning "Of all creations I am the seed", written in the Bhagavad Gita- which will have 21 constellations in total. #audio #Contemporary Classical #MusicWW
    uniE603 Bijam Tad Aham -8th Constellation- for chamber orchestra(2014) by Haladhara Dasa
    Finally, the 8th constellation of this composition is here after so many updates. Since last monday (22.09.2014) I am working on the 10th constellation and I reckon it could be published here in a month or so. Maybe the lessons I got during the 8th work will help me lessening the need of some updates in the 10th. Stay tuned and check my longer pieces. #audio #Contemporary Classical #Music #ArtWW
    uniE603 VAJRA Gen 5 -for Computer- (08.06.2014) by Haladhara Dasa
    Computer Music. The rhythms were obtained through manipulations of a Cellular Automata. The use of filters provide its sonic quality, roughly. Generation 5 because 9 Generations is the whole thing; but Generation 5 proved to be independent enough to be heard separatedly. Use headphones or very good loudspeakers quality and very separated in distance. You´ll get good stereo effects all through. VAJRA means Thunderbolt in Sanskrit, but it also can be understood as Electricity. Krishna says that amongst weapons He is the thunderbolt of Indra (the king of heaven) indicating the extreme power He has. Being this work an electronic one I thought the name can apply. This updated (June 2014) version shows "parabollic" behavior in dynamics and timbre. By now I believe work on this piece is finished, it became more intense. So, the improvements made here will be applied in the next computer pieces -which were already published here, like SOUND.Nov.03.2011, the first of them next to appear-. Be in tune! #audio #Computer Music #Computer #MusicWW
    uniE603 DEVAHUTI -for Chamber Orchestra- by Haladhara Dasa (a Wave-Constellation composition)
    Instrumental Music created with the WAVE-CONSTELLATION method of composition. DEVAHUTI is the mother of Kapila and the wife of Kardama. Devahuti became afflicted -after a lifetime of enjoyment-thanks to her powerful husband, who created all types of wonderful amenities thanks to his psychic powers. She became conscious of her waste of time in amusements and when Kardama anounced his retirement into the forest for a life of seclusion, her son Kapila stayed to teach her how to discriminate between matter and spirit. Their talkings are recorded in the Shrimad Bhagavatam. Música Instrumental creada con el método OLA-CONSTELACIÓN. #audio #OLACONSTELACIÓNWW
