Accompanied by projections by video artist David Cid, the trio will present their latest release in which they have created a series of pieces inspired by works by painter Joan Miró
On Thursday the 9th of April the series of jazz concerts organised by the North American Studies Institute (IEN) will play host to the Ignasi Terraza Trio. Led by pianist Ignasi Terraza, with Horacio Fumero on bass and Esteve Pi on drums, the trio will present their latest project, Imaginant Miró, released in July last year and which includes a number of pieces inspired by the paintings of Joan Miró.
In a dimly-lit venue, before each musical offering, an off-stage voice offers a poetic and suggestive description of one of Miró’s paintings extracted from texts by historian Carlota Polo. The piece is then projected and the trio interpret their particular version of it.
The suite of eight very varied pieces includes works of different styles from different Miró periods and evokes the painter’s images using rhythms and sounds. Pieces such as “The Reaper”, “Nocturne” and “Blood of Frozen Hyacinths of a Burning Football Field” are accompanied by animated images projected by video artist David Cid, a collaborator with La Fura Dels Baus.
Imaginant Miró was released last year to great public acclaim in the National Gallery of Art in Washington as part of the monographic exhibition concerning the painter that was on display at the time in the North American capital. The exhibition also aims to raise public consciousness regarding access to museums and culture institutes for persons with disabilities.
