Concert: Susie Ibarra, “Circadian Rhythms”

World premiere of a newly commissioned work, Circadian Rhythms, composed and conducted by Susie Ibarra featuring soloists Devesh Chandra, Alan and Jake George, Matthew Gold, Roberto Juan Rodriguez, Jim Weber, Mamadabou Camera, Eddie Ade Knowles, and Jennifer Milioto Matsue and scored for an 80 piece percussion orchestra. The work also features a surround soundscape of animal and bird recordings from the Macaulay Library of Cornell.

Circadian Rhythms is inspired by the built-in biological rhythms in plants, animals, birds, insects, and bacteria that oscillate, repeat, and change with patterns of movement, migration, birth, and sleep. The composition is a tribute to Earth Day and to the cyclical rhythms that each one of us has while we move and live on this planet.
