Sónar 2013 will close their 20th Anniversary edition at CCCB and MACBA locations with two highly esteemed concerts that share reinterpretation and reconstruction as the conceptual basis for their musical expression.
The CCCB Theatre will host a concert – co-produced by L'Auditori de Barcelona – with Max Richter + bcn216, in which the British composer and the Barcelona group will interpret Richter’s acclaimed recomposed version of "The Four Seasons" by Vivaldi.
Directly after, in the Atri MACBA, Italian producer and sound investigator Lorenzo Senni presents ORACLE, a remarkable audiovisual sensory provoking concert that deconstructs 90’s rave culture.
With these two shows Sónar returns to closely collaborate with CCCB & MACBA, symbolic landmarks of the city and the festival, whose -Teatre CCCB and Atri MACBA- spaces set the perfect stage for Sónar’s 20th Anniversary closing. Joining these two sites will be the classic SonarVillage location of Plaça Joan Corominas, where a bar will be in place for attendees.
Max Richter + bcn216: Four Seasons Recomposed (Deutsche Grammophon / DE-ES)
German-born British composer and pianist, Richter is a musician used to challenges. The most recent of which was to recompose Antonio Vivaldi's hugely popular "Four Seasons", in collaboration with German label Deutsche Grammophon: A very personal retreatment that allows the listener to recognize the original piece, while at the same time enjoying it in a completely new and surprising light. Richter will be accompanied by instrumental group BCN216 (resident at L'Auditori de Barcelona) and will bring his subtle and individual re-adaptation of Vivaldi’s creation ‘live’. He has reconfigured the body of work by removing a number of notes, reorganizing certain passages and adding seductive electronic arrangements.
Sunday 16th June / CCCB Theatre – 20.00h
Lorenzo Senni presents ORACLE (Editions Mego / IT)
Tireless investigator of dance music’s mechanisms and working parts, and head of respected experimental label Presto!?, the Italian musician produced one of last year’s most unique albums "Quantum Jelly" (on label Editions Mego). An amazing deconstruction of sound and rave culture of the 90’s (chiefly trance and hard techno), in which he carefully analyzed it’s constituent parts for reuse in a very different context, with repetition and isolation as key concepts. Music from album Quantum Jelly will underpin the audiovisual show at Atri MACBA, an unusual space that will be transformed by Senni through the installation of laser and smoke generated columns. The immersive experience will be highly evocative and have a sensorial impact.
Sunday 16th June / Atri MACBA – 22:00h
