Composer Notes: Mirem Edurne is one of the most amazing artists I have ever met. Her ability to tell stories and command an audience with every performance has wlways amazes me. She’s always been there to listen to my ideas when the rest of the world -and even myselfdon’t believe in what I’m doing. When I heard she was sick, I wanted to be there for her but the distance did not allow it. It was heartbreaking for me. Since winning the IGNITE commission competition and searching for a theme to write a new choral work for C4, Mirem became the source of inspiration for what I’d write next. Orange is about longing to be closer to the ones we love. One of Mirem’s songs called “Los pájaros del parque” (The birds at the park) says “With my super radiocontrol I freeze time, to keep in my soul the pieces of you I never have”. Orange depicts the search of the signal in that radiocontrol to find the captured moments we treasure. Orange is Mirem’s favorite color.
