12 April - 29 November
MUSIC AND ART: SOUND CORRESPONDENCES 2011
The first concert, which takes its inspiration from the work of Ana Maria Maiolino, focuses on dichotomy and the artist’s interest in language and the use of elementary gestures and repetitive movements. To visualize these aspects of her work, an instrumental combination was chosen, presenting a clear duality: the world of breath performed by the saxophone quartet (S@X21, Galicia) and the nature of the acoustics of strings (Quarteto de cordas de Mataosinhos, Portugal), with a programme that explores the possibilities of language and speech in an instrumental context, the transformation of different acoustics and movement linked to figures and sound.
Concerts will be held in CGAC’s auditorium, at 20:30. They are free, but seating capacity is limited.
At 19:00 prior to each concert, there will be a guided tour of the Centre’s Exhibitions given by experts in the fields of art and culture.
