NEW YORK, NY – January 24, 2008 – Next February 6, 2008, 6PM, the
contemporary music composer Emanuel Pimenta will perform his musical
concert Deep Ocean at the Björn Ressle Contemporary Art Gallery in New
York City. The concert, a premiere in the United States, works with
sounds recorded in deep oceanic regions, from Alaska to the Marianna’s
trench in the Pacific Ocean, by NOAA National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration. The musical piece was composed in homage to the Swiss
philosopher René Berger and the world premiere was performed at the
EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. The music score is totally created
inside virtual environments, a technique Pimenta has developed since
the end of the 1970’s. Deep Ocean starts a new series of performances
by the composer in New York City at the Björn Ressle Gallery. Emanuel
Pimenta is composer for Merce Cunningham since 1986. With more than
twenty compact discs in several countries, his music has been
regularly performed in different parts of the world, such as the
Lincoln Center in New York City, the Biennial of Venice, and also in
Japan, Brazil, Switzerland, England and Portugal among others. Emanuel
Pimenta was born in Brazil, has lived between Switzerland, and New
York since 1985. He studied with Hans Joachim Koellreutter, pupil of
Paul Hindemith, Hermann Scherchen and Marcel Moyse. His bio can be
