alcmaeon Recording

The new recording of my new piece for The Cadillac Moon Ensemble has just been uploaded. Listen to it HERE. Here are the program notes:

"Alcmaeon of Croton was one of the most eminent natural philosophers and medical theorists of antiquity. He was the first to identify the brain as the seat of understanding and to distinguish understanding from perception.    He was also into the immortality of the soul. In this regard, here is a great quote:
"Men perish because they cannot join the beginning with the end."
My piece tonight does not join the beginning with the end (in fact, most of my music never does this) - its journey is a constant forward."

Thanks to the Cadillac for a wonderful performance!

De Anima Review

"La Jornada" newspaper from Dec 1st, 2012

"[…] la obra De Anima, de Inés Thiebaut, muy sólida en sus juegos tímbricos y en la diferenciación (tanto sónica como estructural) entre lo de metal, lo de madera y las membranas. Inteligente y refinado uso de los cuencos metálicos y del motor del vibráfono por parte de la compositora."
