[Article 1548]01.03.2017: KONZERT E42.A8 (BE/FR) – Juan Manuel Castrillo (ES)

E42.A8 (BE)
Electroacoustic Improvisation

Is first of all a place ;

A place where we try to create the conditions that make improvisation possible, a pretext for meeting, but also an end in itself.

A place on the fence : not useful anymore for its previous purpose, and yet without a new and definitive form.

To take the time ;

To think not in terms of composition and efficiency, but rather in terms of freedoms-constraints, texture-range, inside-outside, games-interactions, pulse-stretch, moments-intensity, diversion-obviousness, amazement-oblivion, silence-saturation,  space-sound +++


~on the occasion of these extra-muros sessions we will gather a few from those regular players : Ludovic Medery, Benoît Deuxant, Flavien Gillié, Alice Just, Arthur Lacomme, Sylvain van Iniitu, Quentin Conrate, Thomas Coquelet & Frederic Trentelier.

The name E42.A8 is undeterminately referencing highway junctions, impossible chess moves, Manuel Göttsching + Basic Channel titles & P16.D4.

Juan Manuel Castrillo (ES)
The concert is comprised of two pieces conceived from field recordings. The first part Memorias de Siria follows a surreal narrative in order to create a dreamlike atmo. Mobilitzacions takes a very different approach. It was composed keeping sound sources recognizable and including as a compositional element the social context where the sounds originated.

Juan Manuel Castrillo works mainly in the field of phonography, but also in soundscape composition and realization of sound installations. In addition, he works on design, production and post-production of sound for cinema, documentaries and tv. Is founder of the Earwitness label and published albums in Gruenrekorder (GER), Impulsive Habitat (POR), TiConzero (ITA), Sudamérica Electrónica (ARG), CPRecords (ARG), among others.
