Calendar: PAMM Free Community Night: Nu Deco Ensemble

Event Description

PAMM partners with Nu Deco Ensemble to present Sacred Geometry. Sacred Geometry is a meditative electro-acoustic performance on visual sound patterns generated by resonances of sound waves with music by Ricardo Romaneiro and live visual projections by Christian Hannon. Geometry is number in space, music is number in time. These geometries in music ascribe symbolic meaning to certain shapes and patterns in certain proportions – they use the laws of vibrations to manifest aurally emotions and what exists at the center of everything.

Made in Miami, Nu Deco Ensemble is a virtuosic and eclectic chamber orchestra designed for the 21st century. Their mission is to create compelling and transformative genre-bending musical experiences to inspire, enrich, and connect new and diverse audiences and artists. Nu Deco Ensemble ignites the imaginations and passions of music lovers of all ages, contributing significantly to the cultural renaissance of South Florida. Fusing a collaborative enthusiasm for new music with classical and popular traditions, Nu Deco Ensemble aspires to represent Miami on the world's stage.

Ricardo Romaneiro was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil and moved to the U.S. at an early age. Romaneiro's music synthesizes his major musical influences & passions: classical and electronic music combined the percussive rhythm/beat of his native country Brazil. The New York Times described his work (Strata) as "a blissful and compelling mix of Minimalist-derived rhythmic ecstasy and nightclub beats".  His music has been commissioned and performed by ensembles and institutions such as the the Museum of Modern Art's Summergarden Series, Metropolis Ensemble, Wordless Music, Ensemble LPR, Nu Deco Ensemble, ECCE, New Juilliard Ensemble, American Composers Orchestra, Quintet of the Americas, the Alvin Ailey Dance Company, Colorado Ballet at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, and the Sacramento Ballet. Romaneiro's music has been featured on NPR live broadcast from Prospect Park Bandshell as part of Celebrate Brooklyn! summer concerts. Esquire Magazine featured his music and work process in their annual "Best & Brightest" issue. A recipient of the ASCAP Rudy Perez Songwriting ScholarshipRomaneiro earned a Bachelor Degree in composition from Manhattan School of Music and a Master degree in composition from The Juilliard School.
