This concert proposal has a combinatorial nature of two elements: on one hand it corresponds to pre-existing and composed material, which was in the final stage of record production with an edition scheduled for October 2020. On the other hand, in a combinatorial perspective, in its live performance, it is intended to produce a concert with site-specific characteristics, that is, whose formulation and presentation takes into account the architectural aspects of the place – typology of surfaces, dimension, recesses, volume, color, lighting – as well as, and fundamentally, its acoustic qualities – reverberation, resonance, etc. In this logic, the intention was to make a presentation that somehow adapts to the nature of the space, making it flourish and working in a non-intrusive way, while also respecting its possible acoustic weaknesses in terms of sound volume and exploring its spatiality.
