COLLAGE ENSEMBLE

¨Una Semana de Bondad¨  

COLLAGE ENSAMBLE is a sort of workshop-composed-real time performance oriented ensemble.

The basic idea is based on questions emerged around compositional process, orchestration and multi language environment, for a long term evolving group composition process.

 

The development of the music  is based on the idea of automat playing, and the inspiring  theme is Max Ernst ¨Une Semaine du Bont騠 collage notebooks from the 1930´s. 

 

Automatic playing and composing is, within improvisation territories,  a subconscious way of introducing  new methodologies for developing new music. The collage technique, created and developed by Dada-Surrealist artists, applied to music composition and real time performance, opens a wide exploring territory, and  confront subjectivity within  ensemble perspectives, and so, on musical  imagination.

 

The written music sheet for this work is prepared as a map of chronometrical multidimensional module staff, on which every material collide into a contrasting and diverse orchestration, and even more, an opposite composed materials from each musician involved in the ensemble; this opens an interesting compositional problem of interaction, musical thinking, metaphysical and philosophic ground on where to seed new genuine musical mind perspectives.
