Sueños (multichannel electroacoustic)

May 22, 2016

Premiered the 26th of November of 2015, during the “Inner Bits” festival in Guayaquil – Ecuador.

Electroacoustic multichannel piece made with different versions of Ecuador’s National anthem and some recordings of former president Jaime Roldós Aguilera. The piece plays with the intelligibility of the selected  speeches that are transformed  to create abstract musical material. It uses parts of the anthem that normally inspire euphoric feelings caused by the warfare nature of  anthems. These fragments are exaggerated to generate powerful gestures that intend to reinforce Roldós’ words. Although Roldós is admired by progressive politicians and intellectuals of Ecuador, his name has been falsely used by certain political movements in Ecuador. My intention is to promote his true words and not what some politicians use to disguise their own agenda.
