Glaciares

A quick guide to the proposal

Welcome to the Glaciers consortium page. I want to clarify some things so that it is easy to find the information here. This consortium will bring to life a work for choir and orchestra. You can read the details of the work below.

Also, if you are a conductor looking for a new commission, you will be surprised by the proposal of the choir and the virtual orchestra. If you think that this experience is not for you but the work is of your interest, you can order the piece for the fee of only 300 dollars. For that you should click and register on the button at the bottom of the page. On the other hand, if you come to be part of the virtual experience, you can register for only 35 dollars. To do this, look for the button “Click here to register for the virtual experience” , create a user in Consort.io and be part of this experience.

Virtual experience

Welcome to the next step toward Carnegie hall in 2023. We are excited to share this new experience with you. We have built an amazing family with The Last March of Destiny and we are hoping you will all join us for this adventure as well. It will be a very similar experience but we have added some new things we think you will love and that will make you, our singers, more involved in the process from start to finish.

Together with Micaela Carballo we will write this piece during December and January. You will also be able to see the complete process. Being part of the Facebook group, you will have access to hear a progress of the work every 15 days. In February we will create the study tracks. So in March you will receive the password to access the website. There you will have all the study material, the instructions and the place where you can deposit your video.

This time it will be very exciting to do this because you will be part of the commissioning of the piece. That is, your name will appear on all copies and editions. In addition, with the payment of fees, you already have all the services and licenses you need to participate in the virtual choir covered. Oh, and I forgot: In this experience you can sing or play an instrument in your recording. You can even do both!

About the registration page

This page has the advantage that if we do not reach the required amount, the money automatically returns to you. That is why I selected to make an alliance with Consort.io . We hope you will invite all of your musical and non musical friends to also join us and share in this amazing experience. If you have any questions or concerns before joining us, please feel free to contact Joy Hewitt at joyhewitt@santiagoveros.site and she will be happy to assist you in any way you need. She is here to help you and make this a most enjoyable experience for all involved.

Synopsis

This work narrates the immensity of the glaciers in a very poetic way. Looking at small changes patiently and calmly will allow us to have inner peace. In times of pandemic and lockdown, we’ll have 4 minutes to fly into an incredible landscape with the voices of the world. The idea of ​​the composition is to generate a choral atmosphere that moves us to clam. With a cinematographic genre, the sound will be epic and majestic. 

About the piece
Glaciares || Micaela Carballo and Santiago Veros (First draft)

This work narrates the immensity of the glaciers in a very poetic way. Looking at small changes patiently and calmly will allow us to have inner peace. We’ll have 8 minutes to fly into an incredible landscape with the voices of the world. The idea of ​​the composition is to generate a choral atmosphere that moves us to clam. With a cinematographic genre, the sound will be epic and majestic.

In this piece we will paint each texture, each place, we will give place to contemplation and to immerse ourselves in an atmosphere of fantasy sound. This music could be part of a movie!

I will give you all the support you need and we can coordinate a virtual meeting to get to know each other and have a good time. I can also help you with the spanish lyrics and pronunciation.

Poem

Eternos campos plateados de
enigmáticos cristales envueltos
en el manto del tiempo.

Huellas del laberinto
de gigantes eternos.
Y en la aurora de los tiempos, 
mil montañas danzando.

El lago de las estrellas,
Los titanes, el enigma del tiempo 
congelado en el viento.

Majestuoso templo de 
guardianes de lo perpetuo 
que abren sus puertas.

Original poem by Santiago Veros
Translation

Eternal silver fields of
enigmatic crystals wrapped
in the cloak of time.

Footprints of the labyrinth
of eternal giants.
And in the dawn of time,
a thousand mountains dancing.

The lake of stars
The titans, the enigma of time
frozen in the wind.

Majestic temple of
guardians of the perpetual
that open their doors.

We have decided to open this work to come to life as a consortium. The cost of the work will be divided between the interested choirs and orchestras. Our expectations are to create a family and divide the cost of the work equally. This will apply to choirs and orchestras. Instead, the virtual experience has a team working in parallel. As we know that many budgets have been refined, you can privately agree on the most convenient payment model for you.

If you want to participate, you can pre-register for free here and we will contact you as soon as we gather the minimum number of members needed.
