Here comes the oficial text from Ajuntament de Vic and press about the Scholarship! 🙂
I am very very happy to announce Alba Font Villar and I won the Prize “Beca a la Creació Artística ‘Ciutat de Vic'” with our project “Espai sense títol”.
Vic is the nearest city of my hometown, where I took High School and music studies. There I met Alba, with who I’ve collaborated in some projects like Untitled Shapes. Somehow, in Vic I also discovered I wanted to be a composer; I wrote there my first pieces, which were played by my friends and colleagues from the Music School.
So there are very good news for me to know I will be able to work there again with “Espai sense títol” in 2020. Right now I am willing to take the flight tomorrow and be there, visit kind of fast my family and receive the on Wednesday in Vic’s City hall.
Next Thursday the 28th my piece “intorno a due vermiglie” will be premiered in Madrid (Festival VANG) by Natasha López and Coro de Cámara de Madrid, conducted by Francisco Ríos.
This piece is based on a Madrigal by Monteverdi, under the same name, and it will be played in a concert called “presente pasado presente”, in which the audience will hear contemporary vocal pieces and barroque-renaissance choir music all together.
I would really like to come to Madrid, so go for me and enjoy this amazing concert!
I am very happy to share the live recording of Monólogo, made one month ago in our Klassenabend Konzert in HfMT Köln.
Monólogo is an old piece (“voice study”) that I composed in 2015 in Zaragoza. It was actually not a piece but an experiment with spoken voice. I hope you enjoy it!
I found an unexpected audio recording of algo sobre un cuerpo. It is a live recording of the general rehearsal on 15.12.17, before the premiere.
You can listen to it here!
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 🙂
It was very funny yesterday performing “A Silent Post” by Lucia Kilger in our Konzertsaal. Willing to see the video recording!
