Electroacoustic piece for four musicians-2 violins-guitar-doublebasse and one radio speakers

Composer: Arturo Corrales

This piece is a parody of a radio programm and a parody of a contemporary piece at the same time.

Arturo Corrales is using collage in this piece (from ligeti to mambo passing through heavy metal and Pucini) and topics of radio speakers (footbalmatch speaker ) to kill the idea of the « scaring »contemporary music in a kind of « minidada-opera »

Of determinedly experimental conception, its work of creation is often inspired by ethnic and popular domains. Constantly attentive to the formal coherence of his works, to the control of their projection in space and time, he wants to facilitate the expression and the perception of a “livable and human” music.
