This work emerges as a creative dialogue between Brussels-based artist Diego Echegoyen and Buenos Aires-based composer Ezequiel Menalled, who through the combination of techniques of field recording and film sound design with expanded choreography and performative elements in the public space explore the generation of narratives by exchanging the sounds of these cities (e.g.: the sounds of Brussels in the public space of Buenos Aires and vice versa).
The audience will attend the work in progress version of this sound walk performance and will have the chance to talk with the artists afterwards.
Diego Echegoyen (Buenos Aires) is a performing artist graduated at the Institut Supérieur des Arts et des Chorégraphies at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles with a bachelor degree in Plastic, Visual and Spatial Arts in urban space, and holds a post-master degree in performance and specialization at APASS within the Posthogeschool voor Podiumkunsten. In 2010 he co-founded the Argentinian EL CUARTO Theater Company where he worked as an actor, dancer, performer and acting coach ever since. He is co-founder of the Argentinian artistic activist collective Escena Política, with whom he has worked since 2013 in the crossroads of performance and activism.
Ezequiel Menalled (Buenos Aires) is a versatile composer and conductor. In 2003 he founded the Dutch ensemble Modelo62 and has been its musical and artistic director ever since. He received his bachelor and master composition degree at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague, where later he taught from 2008 until 2016. His music is performed around the world by various ensembles and soloists. He specializes in works that are conventionally notated, ranging from soloist to large ensemble, and purely acoustic or combined with electronics. In the last years he experimented with different systems of notation that combined the traditional system with an active improvisatory decision-making from the player’s side. Additionally, his music expanded into a transdisciplinary frame with other art forms such as photography, theatre, performance, dance and opera.
