serra da estrela diaries #03: concert in the Conservatório de Música de Seia

March 12th 2016 a concert in the Conservatório de Música de Seia marked the end of my artistic residency in Festival Dias de Música Electroacústica in Portugal. The programme mixed both instrumental and elecroacoustic works. There were some older pieces such as the acousmatic turé tendencioso from 2008 and levante, solo clarinet piece written in 2006. Here you may enjoy the live recording of the beautiful interpretation by Carlos Silva, clarinet professor in the conservatoire:

The most awaited moment though (at least for me) was the première of diáspora, the new piece for quartet and electronic sounds I'd just written. For this piece I called to the stage professors Hugo Passeira (piano), José Pedro Sousa (violoncelo), Ludovic Afonso (violin) and Túlio Augusto (who triggered the electronic sounds). Carlos Silva took the bass clarinet and I assumed the conductor's role. If you want to take a look at the score of this piece while you enjoy the live-recording, it is available for download in the "works" section of this website.

Other activities were part of this residency project supported by Ibermúsicas, like giving a composition class in Escola de Música Nossa Senhora do Cabo, in Linda-a-Velha, invided by Jaime Reis, as well as two electroacoustic music workshops, centered in the SuperCollider programming environment. The first one took place in the Social and Human Sciences School in the Universidade Nova de Lisboa and the second one happened already in Brazilian soil, in the SP Escola de Teatro.
