ABOUT THE PROJECT
The series Sonic Pluralities presents a program of musical evenings hosted by artists that are approaching sonic experience from plural positions. To speak from the plural means to step outside the linear temporalities and standard categories that have been inscripted in the contemporary’ musical gaze. The program reflects on each artist’s journeys of migration, trajectories in music and artistic legacies which have composed their own way of sensing-being in musical language. Each evening will present different modes of gathering and diverse musical worlds.
ARTIST OF THE NIGHT:
Tripas - a group integrated by Laura Robles: Ecajon-Ebass, Gustavo Obligado: Saxophone-Clarinet and Tom Kessler: guitar and Edrum, is a mixture of Latin American chaotic urban sounds, Folklore and free Improvisation.
For two years the 3 musicians have been using different rhythmic elements of Latin American popular music and the noise that characterizes the continent to create new sounds, melodies and rhythms with traditional instruments and machines built by Tom K.
