Giacometti 2.0

 

Artistic/Musical/Tech Director
& Creative Ensemble Leader.

October 2013, Casa da Música, Porto (PT).

 

Original multimedia performance inspired by the ethnomusicological field research of Michel Giacometti on Portuguese traditional music. Compasso Quat, a creative ensemble based in Braga (Portugal) led by me, created all the music collaboratively inspired both by the raw footage from Giacometti and by its technological resurrection through the Giacotar: a multimedia guitar that plays videos as if they were musical notes. I devised and built such a high tech instrument with the clear intention of giving new life to a long forgotten musical heritage.
