Urmas Sisask (born 9 September 1960 in Rapla) is an Estonian composer. One of the major inspirations for his music is astronomy. Based on the trajectories of the planets in the solar system, he created the "planetal scale", a mode consisting of the pitches C#, D, F#, G#, and A. Later, he discovered to his surprise that this was exactly the same as the Japanese Kumayoshi mode, which is also known as the Japanese pentatonic scale. Sisask is a Roman Catholic, and much of what he composes is sacred music.

comment
  • Direttore di coro e di orchestra, ha conseguito il diploma di composizione al conservatorio di Tallinn nel 1985 sotto la guida di René Eespere. Autore stilisticamente eclettico, ama permeare la sua musica di significati simbolici, ma è soprattutto la sua grande passione per l'astronomia ad indirizzare la sua arte compositiva verso un continuo parallelismo tra armonia cosmica e armonia musicale: egli stesso si definisce un « astromusicista ». Vive e compone nel piccolo villaggio di Jäneda.

  • Urmas Sisask (Rapla, 9 september 1960) is een Estse componist en koor- en orkestdirigent. Sisask woont en werkt in het kleine dorp Jäneda. Al op 15-jarige leeftijd componeerde Sisask zijn Starry Sky-pianocyclus. Na zijn afstuderen in 1985 bij René Eespere aan het conservatorium van Tallinn verdiepte hij zich in de Gregoriaanse zang en de barokmuziek. Sisask is rooms-katholiek, en een groot deel van wat hij schrijft is religieuze muziek. Zijn composities zijn eclectisch van stijl, en hij houdt ervan om ze te doordrenken van symboliek. Bovenal bleef de astronomie zijn grootste inspiratiebron, en zijn hartstocht is om een parallellisme te bewerkstelligen tussen kosmische en muzikale harmonie. Op de banen van de planeten van het zonnestelsel baseerde hij de planetaire schaal, een modus die bes
