New Recording of “the sea is near me.”

I am so happy to share Jorge Paz’s recording of “the sea is near me.”  This composition is one of those rare works whose conception was entirely filled with simplistic  joy. A pensive manifestation of childhood nostalgia, this piece reimagines the beaches and cliffs of Emerald Cove (Palos Verdes) and displays a sense of childlike wonder that ensues while looking over the rolling waves of the Pacific Ocean.

Premiered by Jorge Paz, this recording culminated from a very close collaboration that has spanned over multiple works.

Author: Tristan Koester

Tristan Xavier Köster (b. 1993) is a Los Angeles born composer currently living in Hamburg, Germany. Working with ensembles and musicians in predominantly acoustic settings, Tristan is inspired by the abstract emotive capabilities of music and its ability to be radically interpreted by performers and listeners alike. Searching to exhibit a new “colloquial” sound in the contemporary classical medium, Tristan thinks of himself as a musician constantly improvising and searching for an unheard, yet intuitive, way to approach an instrument or ensemble.
