September means for me always work, and I am happy to be working –for the moment silently– in two big projects:
–On December 17th Kai Wessel will sing a new commissioned piece by me in HfMT-Köln based on a Barocke Cantata.
–On May 2020 my first opera will be premiered! A commission from Theater Bielefeld about the climate change !
so workworkwork. it seems it will be a year with a lot of voices!
Closing the year, waiting for the quietness of my town, I am flying today again to Spain (after this Deutsche Bahn trip hehe). 2018 was intense, REALLY intense! So it’s worthy to take now a break to fly again back with my energy bar full.
I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year 🙂
Tomorrow, the 18th I will be doing a presentation of my analysis of “Trash TV Trance” by Fausto Romitelli, in the Seminar of Electronic Music given by Michael Beil in Studio für Elektronische Musik of HfMT Köln.
I am very happy to say my String Quartet “algo sobre un cuerpo” was selected as a finalist in Città di Udine Composition Contest.
Really good and motivating news, as my piece is one of the 17 finalists pieces of the amount of 517 applications.
On December 2016, during my residency in “Etopia” (Zaragoza), I had the pleasure to participate in a percussion improvisation group for the recording of the new CD from Ashley Paul, which was released at the begginig of this month. It’s called “Lost in Shadows” and you can find it here:
It’s always a pleasure to meet all kind of artists like Ashley that open your mind and make you do new things (:
The next 31st of March Neopercusión will be performing again “Primera Palabra” in El Escorial (Madrid). This time the piece will be again played in the whole cycle of “Septem Verba”, together with composers such as Sergio Coté or Alicia Lázaro.
I am very happy and honoured to say I am invited to attend to the next “Get Together” Workshop of Southampton University (UK).
I am very excited and looking forward! Good news in a very busy month!
