¿Do we think music or music think us?

TALLER_ABIERTO 2:8 Is an open_environment_system_source for the experimentation and experiencing within compositional processes. I created it in CDMX in 2017- 2018 as a complex re-thinking_re-resourcing_re-consideration_re-educating_re-formative  approach for metaphony,  open researching and self inquiring, sound_percussive phenomenology and complex thinking. It operates as an integral active creative-imaginary universe for the awareness of  present being state. 


It involves working into the Introvision  of our_sound_self towards the concept of sounding state of the world in/around us and from our present sound imaginary.  


We work from the nature of nature, from a liberating demarcation of denominations, style concepts, prefixed determinist aesthetics and their models. A state of the art working space_environment TALLER ABIERTO means a call for a renewal  into  cultural paradigms and constraints of the psyche, archetypes, reminiscences and traces from the past into the present future features of  social behavior and thought, knowledge and art practices.



The genesis and composition of process is evolving from an inner pure place within us, it can remind that nietzscherian philosophic vision of the music before music.


The program as it is conceived, works as a fertile environment for creative compositional and instrumental explorative and experiential practice, and for the awakening of a percussive state of being that is inhabitant in the doing/making of music as a being within us; in fact, it is Us. It is not a searching nor seeking to provide a technical tool but introducing a reflective positive-negative (gravity_hemispheric_polar) implications inherent to the creative embodiment that conforms an open ended infinite compositional thinking mindset to reinforce the being of the musical being in a continuum workout dimension, also decoding and considering a deep strong re-configuration of mindset and performing habits into our own lives and practices. 



Aimed at musicians and performing artists  interested in auditive thinking, percussivness, audiovision, this program resemble a system for focusing on phenomenological issues of order, transformation, change and movement as humans-artist-creators. The program is open to anyone (non artist included!) who are interested in the compositional processes of the body-mind experience, in what I call the percussive experiences awareness of self, proprioception and cognition, eukinetics, auditive thinking, kinesiology, and especially on the state of present self singularity.


a compositional process with Fabian Rangel

for Violin and Extended DrumSet Percussion

¨I¨ is the composition resulting from self questioning, sensory experiencing of self state, self awareness, perception and consciousness of the inner and outer environment. It is the complex compound open answering to those inner questions resulting from a working progress process integrated by philosophical ideas, aesthetic researching and study within the classical and contemporary musical tradition, experimental music orientation, Creative Music and Music Improvisation.

The working process with Fabian Rangel, violinist music student at ESM in Mexico City, expands beyond the complex world of music itself from the academical stand point of view. 

To begin with the creative workshop started from the inner impulse as a spring of generative elements nurturing the whole process. The revealed implications involved in the process brought to life complex personality problems to be resolved through a sort of inner treatment in itself. 

So ¨I¨ has been composed departing from the idea of percussiveness in sound and its natural properties in the body. As music, it has been conceived like a plasma graphic score as a self container of textural elements, that evolves into modules of mixed material  of traditional music notation subjects. Improvisation plays a basic role as a tool for interlacing the 4 parts of the whole work.

The work is well organized  and supported by a symbol codification for the conceptual and performance of the materials. And it offers the possibility to be performed as a violin and drum set duo or as a large string and percussion ensemble.
