Synopsis : Sound to Sea alludes to voyages: voyages of discovery and exploration, and also voyages of the mind. The author contemplates the nature and practice of creativity, and provides a personal account of his creative journey. He offers original insights into the art of composing in the 21st century, where scientific developments, and technologies of information and reproduction are transforming the way we think about the nature and practice of creativity. Professor Miranda used his scientific knowledge and insight to develop methods for composing with the logic of processes in natural growth and evolution, computer simulations of neurones, and models of the human vocal tract. Excerpts from Charles Darwin's diary and Shakespeare's poetry mingle with allusions to Elgar, Mozart, and Stravinsky to form a fertile mosaic of scientific and cultural sources of inspiration for Sound to Sea. Beautifully designed and illustrated, the book includes the full musical score of Sound to Sea and a CD of the recording of its premiere at Plymouth's Minster Church of St. Andrew by Ten Tors Orchestra, Peninsula Arts Chorale and mezzo-soprano Juliette Pochin, under the baton of Simon Ible.
Eduardo Reck Miranda exists on the exciting border of science and art. This is a bright, important and brilliantly entertaining work. --Andrew Smith, author of 'Is this the Code of Joy?' The Sunday Times
This book, by a pioneer of contemporary experimental music, achieves two valuable ends. First, it explores an artist's creative process in a degree of detail that is seldom documented. Second, it shows how computers can offer a genuinely creative element in music composition. It is not in any sense an explanation of Eduardo Reck Miranda s music no music should require that. Rather, it is a story of how an striking composition was born: an unusually generous prelude to a rich aural experience. --Philip Ball, author of 'The Music Instinct'
