Concert for Augmented Instruments

20th march 2015

An activity within the framework of EME5 Electroacoustic Music Meetings.

For some time now, performers and sound-musical creators have been striving to endow conventional instruments with other expressive capacities by making use of technology, building systems to control timbral, spatial and performative parameters, expanding the possibilities of traditional instruments. This line of work is what will be shown in this concert, by a group of instrumentalists and composers who, continuously, have been the core of the EME5 Electroacoustic Music Encounters, organised by the Municipal Foundation of Culture of Gijón.
