Info for Tres Momentos
"Tres Momentos" describes a section of the infinite spiral, in which disorder and structure, the sacred and the profane, life and death are mutually dependent. Drone sounds connect three composed moments for string orchestra.
The composition's lyrical tones contrast with multi-layered noise elements, which ultimately dissolve into a waltz. With this release, Sven Helbig departs from his previously preferred rigorous tonal harmonies, and the electronic components become more prominent.
The live recording of the concert with Deutsches Kammerorchester Berlin will appear on the Neue Meister label on August 10, 2018. Colombian puppeteer Omayra Martinez Garzon produced the music video for "El Tercer Momento".
With the cover artwork, Sven Helbig quotes the 3,000-year-old Chinese oracle of "I Ching". The trigram stands for the universal, the eternal and for creative power.
Sven Helbig, electronics
Deutsches Kammerorchester Berlin
belongs to a generation of composers who have removed the border between classical and popular. He is recognized in the world of contemporary classical music as well as in the establishment and underground of popular music.
Creative partnerships emerged, such as those with the Fauré Quartett, opera singer René Pape, Kristjan Järvi or the Deutsche Grammophon label on one hand and the Pet Shop Boys, Rammstein or Snoop Dogg on the other.
Next to his choir and orchestra compositions for the classical concert stage, Sven Helbig tours with his electronic music. On mallets, controllers and keyboards he adds prepared sounds and samples to his compositions , using all means of electronic altering.
Last year, Sven Helbig received the title “Maestro honorario” from the National University of San Martin in Buenos Aires. Since then he has been working closely with the university on mutual art projects and has given presentations on subjects of intercultural exchange. Sven Helbig was born in Eisenhuettenstadt. He studied music in Dresden and New York. In 1996, he and Markus Rindt founded the Dresdner Sinfoniker, the first European orchestra exclusively dedicated to contemporary music.
In February 2013, Sven Helbig released his debut album Pocket Symphonies at Deutsche Grammophon.
