AGON ORCHESTRA & IAN JIROUS: Magarova Summa
A celebration of the Plastic Peopleís mentor and poet Ivan Jirous (Magor) for large contemporary music ensemble, samples and demotic voice. Richly orchestrated and stylistically polymorphic, this is an ambitious work, beginning with a Rene Lussier style orchestration of Jirousís voice, moving through orchestra/chaotic rock chords, Bittovaesque singing, rich noise-scapes, atmospheric suspensions, complexity, simplicity, musical elements from all the major genre groups, tangled together, plus the kitchen sink. There are 5 sections, two composed by Martin Acher, and one each by Michal Netjeck, Marko Ivanovic, and Petr Kofron; though thereís a general unity.
