Photonic Constructions III: Composition Commission issued to Minas Borboudakis

South West German Philharmonic Orchestra of Constance

The composition commission issued to Greek-German composer Minas Borboudakis with the support of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation represents a milestone in the history and the repertoire of the South West German Philharmonic Orchestra (Südwestdeutsche Philharmonie Konstanz). For the first time now it has been possible to enlist an internationally recognized composer present on the German music scene to write a piece for the orchestra from Lake Constance. The work "Photonic Constructions III" is an attempt at representing in tonal form the fleeting, intangible phenomenon of "light" – using sinus waves and micro-patterns, sounds can be experienced in many different hues just like rays of light.
