Oneira (2022) will be released on August 19, 2022 by Aerocade Music featuring all of the percussion quartet music I composed for Clocks in Motion percussion over the last four years as their resident Clock Shop composer.
Oneira is a variation of the word “oneiric” meaning dreams or dreaming.
From the label, Aerocade Music:
“Our 2022 release is Oneira by Clocks in Motion. We know you’ll love this album of percussion quartets written by Jennifer Bellor.
We think Oneira sounds like it could be a collaboration between Dave Brubeck, Enya, and Steve Reich. If they were in an alternate universe… inside a video game… on a different planet? ???
What it really says is that Jennifer Bellor’s music is too big for one square genre! We’d love to hear your thoughts on the album when it comes out!!”
Reviravoltas Sonoras was commissioned by bassist Molly Redfield and premiered May 5, 2022 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with Lucas Martins (violin) and Grabriela Ordoñez-Villalobos (vibraphone). The trio came up with the title of the piece after their first rehearsal. A note from the violinist: “The title is from Portuguese and aptly describes the playful soundscape full of twists and turns, creating the juxtapositon of percussive sounds and soaring melodies. The etymological root of the word “Reviravolta” comes from the junction of “revira” and “volta,” which both express some sort of turning, twisting, or dancing. “Sonora” is an adjective that can be translated to express resonance, reverberance, or singing.” – Lucas H.T. Martins (violin)
