Plastic Time (2011)
My first solo CD "Plastic Time." Featuring performances by Mauricio Salguero, Rebecca Ashe, Mary Elizabeth Thompson-Meyer, Daniel Vega, and Anthony Williams. A collection of chamber works and works for acoustic instruments and electronic media by Mexican born composer Jorge Sosa. An album of daring new works focused on the juxtaposition of noise and beautiful melodic writing.

Enceladus is an electro-acoustic work by New York-based contemporary classical composer, Jorge Sosa. The work is structured around the trumpet playing of jazz musician and composer, Dave Lisik. Consequently, a rich jazz flavour colours the entire work, which is at times reminiscent of late period Weather Report and Miles Davis, but as imagined by someone from, well, from Enceladus!
The album was inspired by the extraordinary natural phenomena occuring in Saturn’s orbit. One of Saturn’s moons, Enceladus was studied and photographed by NASA’s Cassini mission. The research found that frozen dust particles present in the moon’s surface were propelled to space by volcanic activity. These particles are then trapped by Saturn’s gravitational pull and become part of the composition of Saturn’s rings. The implications are fascinating - that the activity of a relatively small entity (itself trapped within the gravitational pull of a larger and vastly more dominant central presence) has the potential to dramatically alter the fundamental character of its larger, more powerful host.
"“The boldest choices on Tárogató Constructions are to be found on Lamneck and Jorge Sosa’s Enchantment, in which Lamneck sounds her most relaxed amid Sosa’s intriguing and deftly painted landscape.”"
