    American Composers Orchestra - Anne Manson, conductor Next Atlantis, by composer Sebastian Currier with video by Pawel Wojtasik, was commissioned and premiered by ACO in 2009 and addresses the interaction between human culture and nature. The watery world featured in the visual images is New Orleans and the surrounding bayou, which flows into the Gulf of Mexico. Currier says, “I’ve always loved the sound of water and have had in mind for some time to write a piece that wove water sounds into a musical fabric. And here the sound of water is especially poignant, because for New Orleans water is both the life-blood of the city and its potential destroyer.” Liner notes: http://www.americancomposers.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/AV-Album-Liner-Notes.pdf#page=4

      While the myriad details that are crammed into Sebastian Currier's scores are reminiscent of the elaborate layers found in the Romantic music of the 19th century, and his detailed conceptualizations for pieces seem as thoroughly plotted as those of a post-War total serialist, Currier writes music that very much belongs to our own less certain times.
