4 estaciones de vida en 24 metáforas

4 Estaciones de Vida en 24 Metáforas. A very special sound poetry and extended drum set-percussion work. Inspired by Issa Kkobayashi´s haiku, and also strongly influenced by Akira Kurosawa´s film Dreams.

 

This work homage Japanese drumming tradition, haiku, sound poetry and my own Zen sense of rhythmic movement and  percussive construction. Is a long piece in 24 short pieces, performing live sound poetry in Japanese  and very varied use of the extended drum set. This work has  comprehensively explores a  language more linked to classical contemporary percussion literature that that of drum set.
