MUSIC AND ART: SOUND CORRESPONDENCES
CONCERTS SERIES CENTRO GALEGO DE ARTE CONTEMPORÁNEA
may – november 2012
The concert series Music and art: sound correspondences continues as each year the dialogue between music and contemporary art starting from the exhibition developed by the CGAC. In this issue, they visit us some of the most prestigious composers emerging in the new contemporary scene helping to form a point of reference for contemporary music art and a truly interdisciplinary meeting of musical creation with projections, conferences, interviews and concerts about new music.
Among the composers invited by Vertixe Sonora to travel on the crossroads that the Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea presents through its proposals there are living artists of very different sensibilities, nationalities and cultures and they are considered all the current creative expressions. The aim is to show a comprehensive retrospective report on the most advanced aesthetic, the most important composers and the most interesting development prospects of the new international soundscape .
The series starts on International Museum Day with a special concert presentation, The inspiration of light. Music and video projections of Pierre Jodlowski (Toulouse, 1971) and Giorgio Netti (Milan, 1963), –two personalities very related to the trajectory of the group– that will serve as introduction to the other four concerts with thirteen world premieres and several parallel activities.
Works and artists from the Foundation Helga de Alvear Collection included in the exhibition From the generosity serve as a reference to González Compean (Leon-Guanajuato, Mexico, 1978), Hernández Ramos (Mexico City, Mexico, 1975) and Ramon Souto (Vigo, Spain, 1976) for the compositions of the second concert of the series entitled Collection. It completed the program with presentations in Spain of Dmitri Kourliandski (Russia, Moscow, 1976) and Nadir Vassena (Balerna, Switzerland, 1970)
Time, infinite repetition and presence are the four key concepts in the work of artist Esther Ferrer, who may be in the CGAC. The title of the exhibition, In four movements, also serves as a reference to a show in which these concepts are handled from a musical and personal level by composers Teresa Carrasco (Oviedo, Spain, 1980), Sivan Cohen-Elias (Jerusalem, Israel,1976), Marco Marinoni (Monza, Italy, 1974) and Oriol Saladrigues (Barcelona, Spain, 1978).
The work of Fernando Casás and his relationship with the land art will double presence in this cycle. First, About landscapes, walks and sound archaeologies… a concert of electronic music curated by sound artist and composer Angel Faraldo (Ferrol, Spain, 1980), and closing the series, Ephemeral, five creations about the work of Casás by composers as Jacobo Gaspar (Mos, Pontevedra, 1975), Esaias Järnegard (Stockholm, Sweden, 1980),Alexander Khubeev (Perm, Russia, 1986), Matthias Kranebitter (Vienna, Austria, 1980) and Simone Movio (Latisana, Italy , 1978).
