With a repertoire that combines music with electronics, the National Congress Symphony Orchestra presents its eighth concert of the official 2021 season called Lux. Music and electronics. It will be tomorrow, at 7:00 p.m., at the ANDE Museum (Ruy Díaz de Guzmán and Francisco López, Sajonia), in what was the first power plant in Paraguay.
On the occasion, the CCR Cabildo and the OSIC will pay tribute to Lucy Yegros and José Luis Ardissone, Masters of Art, who recently completed 81 years of life. Admission is free, with prior scheduling at (0994) 304-935.
Lux. Music and electronics offers a completely different experience to traditional symphonic concerts. “With the surprising space provided by the old power plant, we will present an extraordinary program that includes world and national premieres of works that combine traditional instruments with contemporary techniques used thanks to electronic media,” says maestro Diego Sánchez Haase, director of the OSIC.
He explains that the sound of a solo violin will be distorted by live electronic processes, which result in a completely different sound from the traditional one. To fully enjoy this experience, the viewer must be predisposed to live a different concept of sound, in a different space than a conventional concert hall.
Repertoire. Conceived especially for this space, the repertoire prepared includes compositions that combine music with electronics, with works Convergences II, for violin and live electronics, by Eduardo Caballero (Mexico) with María Eugenia Benítez as violin soloist. Later, Light carved by shadows, for trombone and live electronics, with Fátima Abramo on trombone; Reflections, for flute, electronics and lights, by Horacio Viñales Méndez (Paraguay), with the soloist Montserrat Duarte on flute, and finally the Untitled pieceby Alejando Ledesma Juvinel.
In the second part, they will offer Lux. Requiem for tenor, string orchestra and live electronics, based on texts by Pedro Paredez Argüello. This piece is a tribute to the workers who died at the plant, and to the victims of the pandemic.
Honored. Lucy Yegros was trained in the visual arts by great teachers. He has exhibited individually since 1984. His works cover techniques that range from painting and engraving to installation and performance.
For his part, José Luis Ardissone is an actor, director, set designer and costume designer. He received his degree as an architect in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). He was co-founder of the group Gente de teatro and founder of the Harlequin Theater in 1982.
