SEASON OF CONCERTS

VERTIXE SONORA

CENTRO GALEGO DE ARTE CONTEMPORÁNEA

vertixe_sonora17

19 May – 19 December 2017

MUSIC AND ART: SOUND CORRESPONDENCES

Catálogos de sopro, respiración e asubío, an obsessive and recurring study of the diffusion of air by the composer Ramón Souto (Spain, 1976). This is the start of the new edition of Music and Art. Sound Correspondences to mark International Museum Day, an encounter between the music and art of our time, which is open to all current creative expression in order to raise awareness about the most advanced aesthetics, the most important composers on the new music scene and the most interesting development prospects for new music.

Curated by Vertixe Sonora, new writers on the international scene composing original works based on the exhibitions, authors and works of the Galician Centre for Contemporary Art. Jorge Gómez Elizondo (Mexico, 1986), Chikage Imai (Japan, 1979), Heather Stebbins (US, 1987) and Joanna Wozny (Poland, 1973) will take as a reference the retrospective exhibition of the artist from Seville, Luis Gordillo, hosted by the CGAC, focusing on strong points and moments of his extensive production. Vertixe Sonora offers composers a new formation in the season, a quintet with saxophone, tuba, electric guitar, piano, percussion and electronics.

A string quartet and a quartet with flute, saxophone, piano and percussion will be the tools used by Oren Boneh (USA/Israel, 1991), Francisco Concha Goldschmidt (Chile, 1981), Macarena Sofia Roscmanich Le Roy (Chile, 1981) and Chris Swithinbank (Netherlands, 1988) to decipher the work of Eduardo Batarda based on the “concerns emanating from the processes of concealment or the iconoclastic exhibition of the image” in the exhibition Mise en Abyme.

In the fourth concert of the season, Paul Clift (Australia, 1978), Stefan Maier (Canada, 1990), Szymon Stanislaw Strzelec (Poland, 1990) and Dam Tramte (US, 1985) will focus on the work of Alvaro Black, on his obsessions and reflections throughout his career. With the soprano Maribeth Diggle, an instrumental and electronic trio, Vertixe Sonora closes the season of the 2017 edition with a total of 12 first worldwide premieres and the presence of composers from Australia, Canada, Chile, US, Netherlands, Israel, Mexico, Poland, UK and Japan.

As in previous editions, the season will turn the CGAC into a centre of musical research and creation with intense work sessions between Vertixe Sonora and the composers in workshops open to the public, including rehearsals and talks with authors of the pieces.

son[UT]opías 2014
Santiago de Compostela

July, 26 – 31

campUSCulturae is a bet from the University of Santiago de Compostela in favour of the cultures of the world, multicultural understanding and promotion of the diversity and pluralism. Inside this wide project it is placed the International Centre of the Creativity, which developed a space of experimentation with relationships that are established between literature, music, performing arts and new technologies. In this context, campUSCulturae presents the second edition of son[UT]opías, international meeting of musical creation that this year has the pleasure of inviting to Santiago de Compostela to the Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa.

son[UT]opías 2014 will take place between 29 and 31 July, three days in which will be a broad musical portrait of the Japanese composer. Solo pieces, Chamber music and orchestral repertoire, music that explores the relationship between Western avant-garde art and Japanese traditional culture. The musical program culminates with the world premiere of a new piece that Hosokawa writes for this project: Drei Engel-Lieder for soprano and harp. For all this, it has sound Vertixe Ensemble as a resident ensemble, as well as with the participation of the Real Filharmonía de Galicia and the presence of two eminent Japanese interpreters: Yuko Kakuta soprano and harpist Naoko Yoshino. The musical composition, transculturation in contemporary music and aspects of new technologies applied to the creation of art of forefront, are issues to be addressed and enjoy the conferences, lectures and concerts of composers, including several world premieres.

On the other hand, the presence of the Japanese artist is an opportunity for new creators who son[UT]opías does not leave unattended, hence the need to organize a specific work session for composers. In addition to the planned Master Class, son[UT]opías opened a call for scores of all ages and nationalities, and registration is free. Besides son[UT]opías opened a call for scores (arrived more than 40 originals from all over the world) from which Hosokawa and the resident ensemble have made a rigorous selection of two works on which creates an extraordinary session of reading and that they will be interpreted in the season 2014/15 of the Galician ensemble.

MUSIC & ART. SOUND CORRESPONDENCES 2015 (II)
CONCERT SERIES

VERTIXE SONORA ENSEMBLE
CENTRO GALEGO DE ARTE CONTEMPORÁNEA
September – December  2015

 

Vertixe Sonora

The second part of the 2015 edition of the cycle “Music and Art: sound correspondences” takes place in September, it’s a meeting between music and the art of our time with the purpose  of presenting the latest trends in music and performing arts as well as the most relevant composers from the new music scene. In order to achieve this goal, Vertixe Sonora asks to the current generation of composers to create works specifically for the CGAC exhibitions.

During this quarter, the cycle will include nine world premieres organized in two concerts. Four of them, those of the composers Desmond Clarke (UK, 1989), Malte Giesen (Germany, 1988), Nicolas Tzortzis (Greece, 1978) and Xoan Xil (Spain, 1972), follow the exhibition “Reflections”, which is showcased at the CGAC until the 11th of October, “reflection understood as an act of meditation or as an optical effect that sometimes changes reality.”

As sound constellations, five new works by the composers Anahita Abassi (Iran, 1985), Ralph Bernarby (Germany, 1988), Ezequiel Menalled (Argentina, 1980), Camilo A. Mendez (Colombia, 1982) and Daniel Moreira (Brazil, 1984 ) give body to the retrospective “Constellations of the intangible” by the Guatemalan photographer Luis Gonzalez Palma, which will take place at the CGAC from the 13th of November until the 31st of December, thus entering “a complex and mysterious universe in which the look as an unsolvable enigma is an inexhaustible source of research.”

MUSIC & ART. SOUND CORRESPONDENCES 2015 (I)
CONCERT SERIES

VERTIXE SONORA ENSEMBLE
CENTRO GALEGO DE ARTE CONTEMPORÁNEA
May–June 2015

The series Música y arte: correspondencias sonoras (Music and art: sonorous correspondences), which has become a reference point in the world of contemporary music creation, boasts the participation of composers from all over the world and the presentation of forty exclusive premiere works over the course of the six sessions to be held at the Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea.

These encounters between music and art will offer the most recent creative expressions. The purpose of these sessions is to highlight today’s avant-garde works in the performing arts and music. Vertixe Sonora proposes new sonorous creations to the current generation of composers with a premise – the idea is to amble through the ways and crossroads laid out by the artists on exhibit at the CGAC.

The series begins with a double program that is once again part of International Museum Day:  Tres veces silencio (Three times silence), with works by Fernando Garnero (Argentina, 1976) and Januibe Tejera (Brazil, 1978), and Codifica/Recupera (Encode/Retrieve), a multimedia show that includes instrumental and electronic music in addition to a live video, referring to the collective exhibit on photography and publishing Edita: secuencia/sentido (Publish: sequence/meaning) at which Vertixe Sonora will interpret the new work by composer, percussionist and improvisation artist, Gustavo Costa (Portugal, 1976).

Similarly, the exhibition bearing the same title as the musical piece, Tectónica (Tectonics), invites us to delve into the creative and poetic universe of the artist Manuel Vilariño through the compositions of Eduardo Caballero (México, 1976), Pamela Madsen (USA), Alberto Arroyo (Spain, 1989), Iker Güemes (Spain, 1971), Alfonso Mendoza (Mexico, 1988) and Nico Sauer (Germany, 1986).

Causal. International composition meeting.
Sunday, June 14 from 11.00 am to 2:00 pm a 14.00 h. Rehearsals open to the public.
Tuesday, June 16 at 8:00 pm. A talk with the composers before the concert.
The composers will discuss their works and participate in rehearsals open to the public. Anyone interested is welcome to come to CGAC’s auditorium to witness the creative process.

Free entry until all places are filled.

MUSIC & ART. SOUND CORRESPONDENCES 2015 (I)
CONCERT SERIES

VERTIXE SONORA ENSEMBLE
CENTRO GALEGO DE ARTE CONTEMPORÁNEA
May–June 2015

 

Vertixe Sonora

 

Music and art: sound correspondences, become a reference for international contemporary musical creation, involves participation of composers from all around the world and more than forty world premieres during its six editions at the Galician Center for Contemporary Art.

The latest creative expressions have place in these encounters between music and art. Its aim is to highlight the most innovative performing and musical ideas of today. Vertixe Sonora proposes new sound creations to the current generation of composers, with one premise: to travel through the crossroads raised by the artists exhibiting at the CGAC.

The concert series begins with a double programme which is integrated, once again, into the celebration of the International Museum Day: Tres veces silencio (Three times silence), with works by Fernando Garnero (Argentina, 1976) and Januibe Tejera (Brazil, 1978) and Codifica/Recupera (Encode/Retrieve), a multimedia show including instrumental music, electronics and live video, referenced to the collective exhibition of photography and editing Edita: secuencia/sentido (Edit: sequence/meaning) in which Vertixe Sonora will perform the new creation of the composer, percussionist and improviser Gustavo Costa (Portugal, 1976 ).

As the exhibition of the same title, Tectónica proposes a survey in the creative and poetic universe of the artist Manuel Vilariño through the compositions by Eduardo Caballero (Mexico, 1976), Pamela Madsen (USA), Alberto Arroyo (Spain, 1989) Iker Guemes (Spain, 1971), Alfonso Mendoza (Mexico) and Nico Sauer (Germany, 1986).

 

Causal. International composition meeting.
The composers will talk about their works and participate in public open rehearsals. Any insterested person may join the musicians at the auditorium of the CGAC to get to know the process of creation of the composers.

Schedule:
Sunday, June 14th, 11-14h – rehearsals with composers open to the public
Tuesday, June 16th, 20h – meeting with composers prior to the concert

 

 

Entrance to all of the activities in the cycle is free of charge until seating capacity is completed.

with the support of Ibermusicas and FONCA (Mexico)


As result of the his artistic residency last year in Vigo, the Mexican composer Victor Ibarra will premiere Tribute to Francisco Toledo supported with Ibermúsicas and FONCA (Mexico). Going across some of its persistent monomanía, Victor Ibarra presents a thorough and systematic work of jewelry sound, peppered with impulsive and uncontrolled bursts of free improvisation and a recurring and obsessive presence of the images. The world premieres of Henrik Denerin and Madamme Cell reflect both ends of his research. In Madamme Cell we find a wild anarchist of sound and in Denerin a refined composer of large Nordic school. Three world premieres that will close this edition of vertixeVIGO.

Music and Art: Sound Correspondences joins the celebration of International Museum Day with a special commemoration for its fifth anniversary that converts the season into a benchmark in international music creation with the participation of composers from a plethora of countries in Europe (Germany, Austria, France, Greece, Holland, Italy, Portugal, United Kingdom, Russia, Serbia, Sweden and Switzerland), the Americas (Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, United States and Mexico) and the Middle East and Asia (Iran, Israel and Turkey). There is space in these encounters between music and art for all of today’s creative expressions with the aim being to shine the light on the most advanced aesthetic manifestations, the most important composers and the most interesting development prospects of this new music. While in previous editions CGAC hosted as many as thirty premieres directly linked to its exhibitions, in 2014 these will be joined by an additional eleven new works commissioned by Vertixe Sonora Ensemble.

Classical references of paintings, together with confrontations between reality and virtuality, society and technology will be present in Ties, the first of the concerts meant as a celebratory tribute to this fruitful relationship between music and art with the presentation in Spain of the works of two composers closely linked to the work done by Vertixe Sonora and the CGAC, Germán Alonso (Spain, 1984) and Stefan Prins (Belgium, 1979).

The second concert—Possible/Impossible—will be linked to the figure of the Galician artist Diego Santomé. Utopia and failure, balance and instability and references to the author’s specific works serve as the elements of the story line for the premiere of Bernardo Barros (Brazil, 1980), Francisco Castillo (Mexico, 1983) and Miguel Matamoro (Spain, 1991), together with the presentation in Spain of the work of Fernando Garnero (Argentina, 1976).

For the 18 November concert the musical proposal comes from Takuto Fukuda (Japan, 1984), Vladimir Gorlinsky (Russia, 1984), Marek Poliks (USA, 1989), Benjamin Scheuer (Germany, 1987) and Sabrina Schroeder (Canada, 1979) under the title Unveiled.

In The Margin of Reality, we will listen to the new creations of Stefan Beyer (Germany, 1981), Lou Michelle (USA, 1975), Andres Nuño de Buen (Mexico, 1988) and Santiago Quintáns (Spain, 1975), musical offerings based on the exhibition on Carlos León The Order of the First Things.

At the same time CAUSAL, International Encounter with Composers—a space for direct, pre-concert conversation with the composers that offers the opportunity to attend rehearsals—will be taking place.

Music and art: sound correspondences continues his dialogue between music and art of our time from the expositions that each season are developed by the CGAC. With this new edition, the cycle is becoming in one of the most relevant in the frame of the musical creation in Galicia. Vertixe Sonora Ensemble, responsible for organizing and developing this activity, invites renowned composers on the international scene to create twelve new works with the only premise of transiting through the crossroads proposed by the Galician Center for Contemporary Art (CGAC).

In this relationship between music and art coexist creators of different nationalities and cultures, and are involved all current creative expressions, in order to see first-hand the most advanced aesthetic, important composers and interesting development prospects of the new music. New to this fourth edition, the cycle is complemented by Listening Protocols, a introducing to contemporary music lecture series linked to the concerts and teaching by musicologist Emilio Lede.

Coinciding with the celebration of International Museum Day the first concert of the series: SOUND UTOPIA. In correlation with the Modern Discomfort exhibition by Miguel Palma, a show for instruments and sound objects that consist of a work by Malin Bang (Sweden, 1974), for four instruments and amplified electrical gadgets; another by Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri (Greece, 1974), which explore the visual and audio perception, and finally a composition by Manuel Rodriguez Valenzuela (Spain, 1980), where the instruments are handled and processed acoustically wih different and varied objects.

The first premieres take place in the second concert of the series, the exhibition devoted to James Welling, THE MIND ON FIREMiguel Farías (Chile, 1983) and Cem Özcelik  (Turkey, 1983) wrote scores inspired by the work of American artist. These pieces will complete a program in that will be heard for the first time in Spain works by Sergej Newski (Russia, 1972), Yoshiaki Onishi (Japan, 1981) and Joan Arnau Pàmies (Spain, 1988).

The last concerts will be dedicated to the work of the artists Ricardo Basbaum and Graham Gussin. Titled ETCETERA, four composers —Martin Herraiz (Brazil, 1980), Hannes Kerschbaumer (Italy, 1981), Zesse Seglias (Greece, 1984) and Marina Poleukhina (Russia, 1989)— will produce a new works whole that reflect on the work of Basbaum. The series closes with AMBIGUOUS AND SUBLIME, a program inspired by the work of Graham Gussin that will feature with the premiere of five new compositions by Bernardo Barros (Brazil), Charles-Antoine Fréchette (Canada), Santiago Díez Fischer (Argentina, 1977), Alireza Farhang (Iran, 1976) and Hugo Morales (Mexico, 1979).

son[UT]opías 2013 will organize from 27th until 30th of June in Santiago de Compostela an international workshop for composers and performers, the ATLAS ACADEMY, counting with the Atlas Ensemble as a guest group (http://www.atlasensemble.nl/)

ATLAS ACADEMY is organized as an international meeting for composers and performers from around the world including presentations, demonstrations and lectures on non-Western instruments, as well as seminars on musical cultures of the east and  composition combining intercultural instruments.

The Atlas Ensemble is an unique chamber orchestra in Europe uniting brilliant  traditional musicians from China, Central Asia, Middle East and Europe. The ensemble presents a world of unexplored sounds of instruments from different cultures. The repertory consists entirely of works specially commissioned for this group. In son[UT]opías 2013 we will attend the world premiere of three new compositions of the composers Ken Ueno, Stefano Pierini and Cerezo Carolina Dávila and also we shall hear these instruments used in a traditional music concert.

ATLAS ACADEMYWorkshop by Atlas Ensemble
The first session, of musicological character, will consist of the presentation of each instrument. Then the work session guide the two modes: performers and composers, but anyone interested is invited to attend.

  • Composers: composers conferences explain and advise writing procedures for these instruments. Those interested can also access the information on the instruments in the Atlas Academy page and bring this session a draft from which they will work.
  • Performers: improvisation session where participants bring their own instruments and play along with the musicians of the Atlas. In this improvisation session the Arabic scales “Maqam” the Chinese pentatonic and elements of “Gagaku” Japanese will be explained and used. Not only addresses the classically trained musicians, also the jazz and folk musicians and anyone interested in improvisation or the microtonal system. And of course whoever would like to try to improvise with unusual or curious instruments may participate.

With the presentation of Emilio Lede (musicologist) and the 
participation of José Antonio Lamas (neuroscientist)

O neurocientífico José Antonio Lamas

José Antonio Lamas (neuroscientist)

 


The program sound visions is struck by the omnipresence of audiovisual products in our perceptual experience. Products that live with images of culture and sound production. This proposal makes a tour of the relationship between music and the visual arts, with a sample of examples of intertextuality that explains the different extensions of the sounds seen and the colors heard cover the centuries.

Professor of the Department of Neuroscience at the Vigo University José Antonio Lamas will make a brief introduction about synesthesia, research topic that has found a renewed interest due to the growing experimentation and audiovisual convergence of traditional media in the digital age and new media environments influenced equally by artistic practices and strategies for market.

SONIC UTOPIA

May 13, 2013 by     No Comments    Posted under: News

utopia sonora ENGLISH

free admission until full capacity

Music and art. Correspondences 2013 starts this fourth edition in dialogue with the Portuguese artist Miguel Palma (Lisbon, 1964) and the retrospective about his work organized by the curator and director of CGAC  Miguel von Hafe Modern Discomfort.

In this concert are presented three different models of matter and energy sound, instrumental interaction and visual perception. If the Portuguese artist is interested about “reality subverted, manipulated realities extracts” or uses “hybrid artifacts devoid of its utilitarian function or far from it” the chosen program today transits these characteristic elements of Palma´s style.

In kobushi burui, Malin Bang (Sweden, 1974) uses four conventionally recognized how such instruments with everyday objects: electrical appliances such as a sewing machine, vacuum cleaner, fan, hair dryer or similar. The manipulation of musical instruments in an unconventional way joins using different objects in the search for a sound equally complex that interacts with the sounds of electric objects used. Malin gets a new sound fruit and contrasting unpredictable actions, ranging from the intimate and almost inaudible to the rough and stubborn.

With Kein Thema, Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri (Greece, 1974) “focuses on the perceptions of the performer. Manipulation of the instrument (sound objects in this case), restricting the usual actions, causes immediate reactions in the performer. Such reactions enable new forms of communication and group behavior. ” In addition, performing repetitive movements in preparing tiny sound action is visually perceptible to the audience, who finds a direct correlation between gesture or action, object and sound. Kein Thema reflects the “intent to explore how the limitation can lead the new possibilities of sound”

Manuel Rodriguez Valenzuela (Valencia, 1980) used in 24 two musical instruments, piano and cello, manipulating them so that creates two new musical instruments. While the piano and become a new sound machine in a special music box through the thorough and accurate action five performers with multiple and varied objects, the cello is modified and amplified acoustically. And as in Palma is a subversion of reality, there are in 24 a transgression of tradition: taking the duo cello and piano connotations relevant to the history of music, Valenzuela includes a quote in the fourth movement of the 5th Sonata Beethoven “as a tribute to his deafness”.

free entrance until full capacity

Vertixe Sonora opens this new space of thought in the environment of contemporary music organized by the Lilliput Gallery in collaboration with Versus Library.

Conscious of the need to improve the contexts of listening in that they are presented the premieres of contemporary music in Galicia, Protocols of listen contributes to the formation of new audiences and introduces in brief lecture format ones of the essential concepts of music creation.

It is designed for non-specialized audience with concern to discover the soundscapes of musical literature of recent decades.

Musicologist Emilio Lede propose creative routes through the history of music in order to decipher some of the keys of the musical creation of all time: thinking on concentration, receptivity and listening; addressing semiotic aspects of musical language; drawing analogies between different contributing authors or giving us perceptual strategies for a closer relationship with actual music.

The meetings are supplemented by the proposition of basic literature and listening routes to transit alone and continue the search for a meaningful encounter with transcendent music art.

ABOUT TRAILS, LANDSCAPES AND SOUND ARCHAEOLOGIES

Nov 6, 2012 by     No Comments    Posted under: News

In the tradition, surely inaugurated by Alvin Lucier, of making audible with the help of technological processes natural acoustic phenomena usually unnoticed into an ordinary ear is a whole school of electronic music and sound art where nature reveals a new and unknown, so far of the use of technology as an innovation in itself, and where sometimes, as in the work of Fernando Casas, promotes an ethic of observation and not intervention; a “natural listening,” either to detect sound through the traces of time and space, or to reveal aspects of reality that otherwise would be inaccessible to us.

In correspondence to the exhibition of Fernando Casas the now was, the before will be, CGAC own production, thus consist in a selection of works by artists of different generations, in order to illustrate the path of an essential theme –the nature– from disparate approaches as the spatial acoustics, the sound ecology, the phonograph, and a current boom in different scientific fields, such as data sonification.

ABOUT TRAILS, LANDSCAPES AND SOUND ARCHAEOLOGIES

Ángel Faraldo – Estudos Sonoros 1 e 2 [2012]

Alvin Lucier – Opera with Objects [1997]

Mark Bain – StartEndTime (Fragmento) [2003]

Andrea Polli and Joe Gilmore – N. 16 April 2006 [2006]

Chris Watson – Ant-Steps [2006]

Hildegard Westerkamp – Kits Beach Soundwalk [1989]

Christina Kubisch – Five Electrical Walks: 1. Homage with Minimal Disinformation [2007]

Durán Vazquez – Home, Sweet Home: 5. Boat Dockage [2009]_

The authors

The work of American artist Mark Bain (1966) revolves around the interaction between acoustics, architecture and physiological reactions to the so-called infrasound. His work is a continuing investigation of the sound effects, either inherent or induced, produced in giant structures such as buildings and other public works. Normally he amplifies infrasound using seismographic equipment or induces vibrations on stilts to make audible the involved structures.

Joe Gilmore is a sound artist and of installations based in northern England. His music has been published in Alku, 12k/Line, Melange and Cut. He is co-founder of rand()%, an internet radio station that transmits real-time generative music.

Christina Kubisch (1948) is one of the most important European sound artists. She studied painting, flute and piano before taking the leap into electronic music in the mid-70s. In 1980 she participates in Für Augen und Ohren, (eye and ear) the first major exhibition of sound art. Since then, in her work the sculptures and sound installations predominate, often using ultraviolet light, solar and electromagnetic induction.

Alvin Lucier (1931) is an influential American composer of experimental music and installations focused on the exploration of acoustic phenomena. He taught until his retirement in Wesleyan University (USA) and was a key member of the Sonic Arts Union, with Robert Ashley, David Behrman, and Gordon Mumma. Much of his work is influenced by science and explores the physical installations properties of sound: spatial resonances, interference or transmission of sound through different physical media. He is the author of seminal works from the second half of the twentieth century, such as Music for Solo Performer (1964), Vespers (1968) or I am Sitting in a Room (1970).

Andrea Polli‘s work emerges naturally from the collaboration between artists and scientists from various disciplines. She is interested in global systems and their effects on individuals. Currently works with meteorologists, developing systems to understand climate information through sound.

Vázquez Durán was born in Vigo in 1979. His work focuses mainly on creating audio, radio plays and live performances. Currently, he produces the Radio Mille Collines program for radio.rakumin.org webradio. His works of long duration (up to 12), and various short pieces have been published since 2003 by independent record and music publishing network of free download. He has performed at music festivals like Sonar, ArtExSonora, Experimentaclub or In-Sonora, and institutions such as the Instituto Cervantes in Berlin, the Goethe-Institut Lisbon, SCC of Montevideo, Buenos Aires MAMBA, or MARCO of Vigo.

Chris Watson is one of the sounds registrars of wildlife and natural phenomena of the moment. In 1971 he was one of the founding members of the experimental music group Cabaret Voltaire. His career as a sound recorder began in 1981 at the Tye Tees Television. Since then he has worked as a freelance artist for film, radio and television, developed a passion and interest particular for recording sounds of animals, habitats and atmospheres worldwide.

Hildegard Westerkamp (1946) is a composer, educator and Canadian radio artist. Since the early 70s belonged to the World Soundscape Project, founded by R. Murray Shafer, his work focuses on environmental sound and sound ecology, topics she has written in abundance. Focussing attention on the details of the acoustic environment, Westerkamp brings us to the hidden interiors and environment we inhabit. It is a founding member of the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology (WFAE) and the Canadian Association of Sound Ecology (CASE).

***

Ángel Faraldo (Ferrol, 1980) is a composer, sound artist and improviser. Usually works with electronic and / or digital and is primarily interested in the systematic exploration of minimal resources to generate extreme conditions.

DIGITAL COLLECTIVE CREATION WORKSHOP

http://vertixesonora.net/contacto/

 

DIGITAL COLLECTIVE CREATION WORKSHOP WITH PURE DATA

This initiative aims to create a Digital Media Group Collective with composers, musicians, sound artists and / or visual and people interested in the field of contemporary music in its broadest sense.

The musical programming environment Pure Data (Pd) will serve as a basis to present and explore a range of techniques and tools for creating experimental electronic music, where participants can manipulate, alter and expand throughout the sessions in search of personal solutions.

The workshop will be divided into two separate blocks of 8 hours each one, spread over weekend schedule. In the first meeting, will introduce the environment Pure Data and empirical work on various techniques of computer music creation. In the second, we will discuss how to transform these techniques in more complex musical instruments, and, with the formation of a band electroacoustic in mind, we introduce aspects of musical interaction with computers, network performance and spatialization.

Block # 1: Bending Software Workshop

The metaphor of ‘bending software’ makes reference to another procedure in the field of contemporary experimental electronic music: circuit bending, whose fundamental principle is to take existing electronic objects (toys, small appliances …) and alter experimental its routes for new and unexpected sounds. Similarly, the bending software workshop will take as its starting point a series of programs (or patches) written in Pd and dedicated to create and modify sounds of various natures. In this way, participants can contact these techniques actively manipulating programs offered for variations on the processes and initial sounds. We believe this is an attractive and simple method for:

(1) To introduce concepts of digital audio, as well as the general features of all programming language oriented sound/music

(2) To expose and develop the fundamentals of programming environment Pure Data,

(3) To present the main techniques of synthesis and sound design, and implementation particularly in Pd, and thus to gain an understanding of the techniques of computer music creation, beyond the specific environment presented.

Block # 2: Electroacoustic Orchestra

The thrust of the second block will be to work towards the formation of a collective creation with the means presented in the first meeting: Ideally, participants will have been familiar with the tools presented, and even have made substantial modifications and additions. Therefore, the contents of the second block will include:

(1) To develop complex musical instruments from the tools presented in the first meeting,

(2) To file and add controllers (hardware) for manual interaction (or at least slightly more physical) with the programs developed / modified

(3) To expand the instruments in multi-user network and exchange data between different participants,

(4) To treat sound spatialization techniques to groups of computers and acoustic sources.

(5) Public presentation in mind, we will work around a series of pieces, and improvisations guided instruments that exploit the resulting materials.

Audience, Requirements and Cost

We invited music students and / or university, composers, musicians, teachers, artists and people interested in the field of music and artistic creation with digital technology.

It is recommended that participants bring their own laptop and headphones.

The number of participants is limited to 12 places by block.

The price per person for each block will be 30 €.

At the beginning of the first meeting will facilitate the necessary installation files of Pure Data, (free software, open source and cross-platform) and digital material (software, pdf’s, audio files, etc.)

REAL ILLUSION

Oct 25, 2012 by     No Comments    Posted under: News





I think underneath all artwork there is a suspicion. A deep suspicion about reality as it´s posing in front of the eye. Because if this is a craft of believing in the eye is also a craft of suspecting of the eye. Juan Muñoz

Real illusion is based on the suspicion that in the origin of all the music for electronic instruments it persists a betrayal perceptive. There is a moment in which ear, eye and brain are giving you information that you don´t recognize. The new specificity shifts the specific instrumental gesture as live concert visual narrative and requires new paradoxes for the ear, the eye and the brain that must continually update reinterpretation structures. With the complicity of Mr. Pause and collaboration of the painter Ramón Trigo and architect Eduardo Berea we sustain the will to explore the endless possibilities offered by this equation.

We present four pieces for solo instrument —Piano percussion saxophone bassoon— and electronics. And four will be the different methodologies applied as appropriate: the perverse—for dislocating sound levels— and exquisite piano amplification [Rendered] the illustration of a soundscape transubstantiated from metalinguistic extension saxophone [Real Illusion]; the dramaturgy of the bassoon heteronymous multiplicity [Impromptu pour un Monodrame]; the spatialization of a infinity time of percussive stone [Three paintings on stone]

The chosen composers are proof of how articulate new affections from the conviction of reality sound which states on the continent.

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 presentationThe 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).
