Strings N´Drums in Resonance
Strings N´Drums in Resonance är ett samarbetsprojekt mellan fransk-brasilianska tonsättaren och gitarristen Aurelio Edler-Copes och den klassiska gitarristen och kompositören Sebastián Caldas Zeballos.
Projektet har stöd från Konstnärsnämnden och har som mål att utveckla och förmedla den nutida gitarrmusikrepertoaren genom att presentera ett program som inrymmer välkända verk som Berios Sequenza XI för gitarr såsom yngre kompositörer och inte minst ett improvisatoriskt verk för två gitarrer och candombe trummor som spelar av sig själv och interagerar med musikerna.
