Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Two performers manipulate sound-objects and slide-projectors producing performativeinstallations in dialogue with the architecture of the space. Sound and visuals are made with lowtech paraphernalia in real time in a sort of live movie. Music, sound and space-design are organized in a music score creating complete audiovisual scenes with simple means. In duo with Alu Montorfano we perform Music Concrete. But this project exists also by itself thanks to a detailed music score, where all the parameters (sound, light and space) are notated. In case other performers than us are playing it, music reading is required (non-specific instrumental skills needed; the piece is open to any musician that feels comfortable playing objects, not necessarily restricted to percussion players). Even theatrical in its outcome, this project comes from the heart of the chamber music. Musique Concrete is in between categories: chamber music and theater, sound and image, concert and installation experimenting with materials and form. I am an argentine composer living in Amsterdam. I write music “in between genres” that somehow is not as difficult to compose (or even perform) as to classify. Experimenting with form has enormous difficulties at the moment of programming: is too theatrical for concert series, is too music-oriented for theater festivals… If you are curious about the proposal and you have questions or doubts about the concept or the implementation, please don’t doubt in contacting me. This project is very flexible and adaptable!
