From 1992, he moved to France and continued his training in Paris at the GRM, the Paris Conservatoire, IRCAM and the Paris 8 University. He worked as a research composer at IRCAM: AudioSculpt Cross-Synthesis Handbook and AudioSculpt treatments controlled by Open Music (graphical control interfaces).
Teacher, researcher and composer, Mario MARY has won over twenty instrumental, electroacoustic and mixed music composition awards, and has given one hundred lectures and courses in various institutions around the world. His aesthetic concerns are oriented towards a music that seeks to generate the emerging signs of the aesthetic trends of the new century. Since the 90s, he has been developing the electroacoustic orchestration technique and the concept of polyphony of space. http://email@example.com
The first part of the work is of an intimate character and with a musical discourse elaborated around diverse articulations, resonances, densities, timbres and trajectories. The second part is a great crescendo where different sound planes are added and renewed, gaining in tension and density. The whole work is conceived in an orchestral and polyphonic manner. The “electroacoustic orchestration” and the “polyphony of space” are two personal techniques that permeate all my electroacoustic and mixed production.

Electroacoustic work that dives into the consequences of an event that triggers a number of desired and unwanted events, that is, disposable. These disposable events, rubbish, are put in evidence and constitute the discourse becoming the material of the work. All production produces waste, this waste is what is spilled over those who do not have access to the goods of the culture of a society that hides them despite it needs them. One of the challenges of art is to highlight these inequalities and motivate reflection on these practices that involve us despite ourselves.

Scène scénique, vous emmène vers une écoute imaginaire qui passe par différentes couches de timbres polyphoniques, avec des événements impliqués dans des mouvements non uniformes, dans des rêves qui traversent notre mémoire sonore pour tout absorber sous forme de scènes accusatrices mais avec une référence future au quotidien.

The conceptual axis refers to technological modernity, industrialization, sound pollution and to the entire environment.
It is a cry for help against the oppressive structural matrix of the system
In the work I used pre-recorded analog sounds (industrial sounds of machines, engines, rumbles, detonations) and computer-generated digital sounds (sirens, interference, feedback, distortions, beats).
Three fragments of poetry from the book “80 poems and songs” by Bertolt Brecht, recited by Marianela Calleja, can also be heard in German, heavily intervened and barely intelligible.

Information Disorder is a composition that deals with how we perceive information in the digital age, and the amount of information we have to filter to understand what is true or false. It is also a work on the deconstruction and deterioration of sound as a compositional tool.
