Daily

with Charlotte – All days for future

Some months without concerts but months writing a lot for music.

Last week on Tuesday the 11th we went to Bielefeld to do a Try Out of some parts of our Chamber Operas with the singers. I am glad to work with Charlotte de Montcassin starring Greta Thunberg’s character.

I am still not used to the Try-out idea –it is something I never did in Spain. It feels sometimes weird to show part of your score when you are on the middle of the composition process. But last week it was very useful to work with Charlotte and get closer to her voice and personality, and I could get a very near impression of the music that for the moment is still “on paper”. It was definitely a very nice experience to work with Charlotte and not only to listen to her wonderful voice so also to share our points of view about the character and the libretto.

Looking forward to May 26th!

HfMT-Köln – Konzertsaal – 19:30h

It is the first piece I compose since I am in the Master of Electronic Music Composition and, of course, electronics are very present in the piece. In this case I use amplified voice, 4-Chanel Electronics and Video.

The piece has been commissioned by Kai Wessel to the Studio für Elektronische Musik, and will be premiered together with pieces of my colleagues Dariya Maminova and Benjamin Grau, and also a marvelous Cantata from Marcello. The concert is part of the “Spizentöne” Series that Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln organizes.
