Performance am 19.02.24, 19:30h @Raumschiff Linz
Lo bueno no es de nadie (What is good belongs to no one) is a sound performance of drums, recited texts and interactive electronics. The set proposes a real-time dialogue between the drummer and the Argentine literary tradition of the 20th century using electronics as a tool to expand the different possible interactions between voice and drums. At the same time, the texts recited in the voice of their own authors are rearticulated as a result of the instrumental and electronic interventions: the original text becomes a hybrid text, unique, alive.
After presenting the first versions of the performance in masterclasses (Conservatorio Superior de Música "Astor Piazzolla", October 2022) and cultural spaces in Buenos Aires, Federico is accepted to work on the project in Banff Musicians in Residence, during January 2023 at the Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity, in Canada.
