I am extremely happy that my piece “Primera Palabra” is played again (for the fourth time now, and the third Ensemble), this time on Xàbia, being a winner of the Call for Works of the III European Meeting of Contemporary Percussion.
Very looking forward to the concert on the 14th of July 🙂
Watch here what you will find in Adventure! Komm vorbei!
Rehearsing a piece is always something exciting, but I must admit this week with Musikfabrik I had one of my best rehearsal-experiences of my life! It’s just amazing to work with these incredible musicians with also so a nice work-flow and mood to play new music of students.
I am very looking forward to Adventure #1, the first concert of a collaboration between Institut für neue Musik and Ensemble Musikfabrik in Köln, where my piece “Unterweisung im Singen – Bearbeitung des gleichnamigen Texte von Julio Cortázar” will be performed by Musikfabrik and the Soprano Elena Plaza.
It’s hard to believe my Master in Instrumental Composition in die HfMT-Köln is almost finished! But in order to do it, first comes my Abschlussprüfung 🙂
On the next Saturday, the 8th of June at 19:30, I am doing my Abschlusskonzert with a very special premiere. I’ve been working on “wenn ich aufhören könnte, von Dir zu träumen” [if I could stop dreaming about you] since September 2018, and on the 8th it will be finally on stage. It is a piece for Ensemble, Video and Electronics, with a very special Theatrical-Performance part; an also for the first time of my life I am not only composer but Filmmaker, Director and Plot-writer. So it will be definitely a exciting experience.
On the 3rd we start rehearsing. Willing to !!!
Another Acht Brücken project ist vorbei!
We had fun on Monday in our “Cruise-Concert”. Twice full concert with a very warm audience.
Thanks Álvaro, Elio and Ramón for the fantastic performance, thanks Doni Liu for having my music in this concert, thanks Acht Brücken for doing everything so easy and thanks to my 7 colleagues that also were premiering pieces for being so a nice crew 🙂
We are ready, we only need the boat!
Tomorrow first premiere of a few that will come in the following months.
Lines Crossed, Acht Brücken 2019.
Álvaro Arias is a very good friend here in Cologne and wonderful saxophonist from Spain. On Monday the 6th he is premiering “algo sobre el gris” and he mentioned it in this interview in SaxRules. Thanks Álvaro, looking forward 🙂
