Grimorio de Fuego by Luciano Borrillo Images of dragon and fire appear in medieval alchemy books (‘grimorios’). These books tell about the search of an interior knowledge that has transforming powers. The piece follows the transformation patterns depicted in the texts.

Un besito a papito by Mónica O’Reilly This piece is part of “De lo que dejaron las Congas” witten in collaboration with the composer Irina Escalante Chernova. It was premiered in Cuba.

Serpencicleta by Jorge Campos* . “I reject the combinatory and sequential discourse in favour of a “process” which generates and controls my entire work. I give preference to sound material that is naïve, rustic, anodyne, ‘impure’, unpleasant, hybrid and rasping over archetypical electro-acoustic material in which even beauty is taken for granted.”

Memories by Ricardo Dal Farra

The piece was written thanks to an invitation from Stanford University and a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation.

Pythagoras by Diego Luzuriaga “I used in this piece samples of sounds made with my own mouth. When these sounds are played using different keys of a digital keyboard, their pitch and rhythm are multiplied in accordance to Pythagorean ratios.”

Irish Tune & Scotish Tune by Anonymous composers The lute enjoyed its popularity from the Middle Ages to the end of the 18th century. The lute was used by folk musicians as well as Court musicians and aristocrats. These short pieces are from 16th century.

Laúdico by Arturo Rodas “I used the rhythmic pattern of the “danzante”, a slow dance-tune from my country”.

Bestiario by Arturo Rodas “The Book of the Orchestra” consists of two parts:

· ‘Fauna’ : acoustic solos for most of the instruments of the orchestra.

· ‘Bestiary’ : computer pieces exploring the ‘personality’ of those instruments.

The pieces played tonight are from the Bestiary.

Friction of things in other places by Rodrigo Sigal

When things occur simultaneously there will always be different levels of friction. This work explores different levels to structure sound ideas through differences in material and sound sources.

Drums ‘n voices by Gabriel Maldonado The human voices and the micro-level compositional structures of this composition are completely generated by the computer, using CsoundAV, according to macro directives provided by the composer.
