This new offering from La Casa Encendida features a series of cutting-edge electronic concerts centred around styles that invite active deep listening and immerse us in unpredictable sound experiences and adventures. Whether relaxing, exciting, hypnotic or moving, they're sure to strike a chord.
Patricia Escudero and Luis Delgado start the ball rolling with their unique tribute to Satie, a classical composer widely regarded as the forerunner to ambient, from an electronic perspective. Pragma (Italy) takes us on an aural journey through cosmic arpeggios, drones and tribal rhythms. Territoire (Olivier Arson, acclaimed author of soundtracks and Goya winner) will treat us to the first live performance of tracks from his upcoming album: a journey to the depths through drones and subwoofers. Lucius Works Here (Shak Benavides) presents her third and latest album in Madrid, Detenido en el Tiempo. Inspired by the sounds and avant-garde composers of the 19th century, she creates an evocative style of music midway between minimalism and experimental ambient. Juan Manuel Cidrón, the indisputable leading exponent in Spain of original cosmic music, in the style of its Berlin School creators and pioneers, brings us his latest work as well as tracks from the new project by Vértice, the trio he forms with two of Italy's most highly acclaimed musicians: Maurizio Bianchi and Saverio Evangelista (Esplendor Geométrico). As part of Audioactivity we'll also have the chance to enjoy music by Félicia Atkinson (France), a sublime combination of deep listening, poetry and ambient. And to round off the programme, Eva Geist (Italy) invites us to join her on a musical cinematographic journey through whimsical melodies, arpeggios and warm ambient rhythms impregnated with space disco.
