Mario de Vega: Vertical (2017)

The evening revolves around questions of ritual concentration, contemplation, and the relativity of gravitational forces, thus expanding on the instrument-based production and projection of sounds. For the live version of his radio composition The Year of a Catdog, Arturas Bumšteinas (2017 ABP guest) has invited Danish sound artist Ragnhild May to perform clay flutes with her vacuum cleaner-driven, multi-flute instrument. The manufacturing of these flutes in a special Japanese kiln in Lithuania serves as the subject of the work. In the 8-channel electroacoustic composition by Charo Calvo (2017 ABP guest) prayers, mantras, and spiritual songs as trance are combined with the augmented accordion sounds of Camilla Barratt-Due as well as the composition Ear Rings by Pauline Oliveros. To end the evening, Mario de Vega embodies verticality in a solo performance with a mixing console.
