Victor Ibarra’s music, by producing cuts, cracks, outbreaks and eruptions, erodes the conditions of common listening. It is characterized by sudden changes and contrasts, but is held together by a strong energy.
Víctor Ibarra is professor of composition at the University of Guanajuato in his native country Mexico. His career has taken him to numerous European centers for New Music, where he has received several awards. With this recording of the Ensemble Vertixe Sonora under Nacho de Paz there is now a monographic CD of the remarkable Mexican composer.
