BASES E INSCRIPCIÓN EN conDit
The Hague based Ensemble Modelo62 brings you experimental classical music with the intensity of a rock band. This international group, consisting of 10 musicians collaborates with young composers on a cutting-edge new repertoire.
Representing a young new generation of musicians, Ensemble Modelo62 brings new contemporary music with a personal approach.
Established in 2003, the group has performed at festivals like November Music, New Works festival Southampton and Darmstadt Festival für Neue Music. After these concerts and tours in the UK, Germany and Norway the ensemble looks forward to making a tour through Argentina, home country of conductor and artistic director Ezequiel Menalled.
Guest composer-in-residence for the upcoming period is Hugo Morales Murguía from Mexico. Currently Modelo62 and Morales are working together on the program Soundeconstruction that includes 3 new compositions by Morales. As well, Modelo62 is further privileged to be presenting a new work by the eminent Dutch composer Gilius Van Bergeijk
and key works from Alvin Lucier and John Cage.
The work of Morales (1979, Mexico) is based on the unconventional use of traditional instruments and the use of daily objects as sources of sound. Each composition is a story of discovery, a 'new' instrument emerging out of an existing one. His work is surprising, playful and poetic, often with a strong visual component. Composers that have inspired Morales round out the program. In John Cage's Branches you will hear amplified cactus needles and sounds of rubbed branches. In Music for snare drum, Lucier creates a counterpoint between sine waves and the resonances caused inside the instrument. And, as Morales' former teacher, Gilius Van Bergeijk's music will show the influences that have been a constant stimulus in Morales' music.
