I premiered a new piece on December 7th at the Centro Mexicano para la Musica y las Artes Sonoras, comprising work produced during a 2 week composer residency there.
The work, based on the work of painter Leonora Carrington, is called Sonámbulo: un bebedero para pájaros compuesto por dientes para la novia del viento (Sleepwalker: a birdbath composed of teeth for the bride of the wind)
I’ll continue to work on the material through the winter back in Scotland. hopefully, if all the gods come into alignment I shall be allowed to take the completed work back to Mexico.
Sonambulo, the CMMAS residency, and a talk for Anglo Arts, hosted by Mexico City’s Centro de Cultura Digital were developed as part of Seeing Hearing UK Mexico, a three-year collaboration between the UK and Mexico made possible with the support of Anglo Arts the cultural department of The Anglo Mexican Foundation A.C; British Council Mexico, CMMAS (Centro Mexicano para la Musica y las Artes Sonoras) and Cryptic.
