Joan Bagés i Rubí - Más De Mil Ojos Nos Vigilan
A thousand eyes were watching when Joan Bagés i Rubí teamed up with Cellist Martín Devoto to create the nucleus of his first Petcord album. Based on live improvisation and acousmatic deconstruction of the recordings, many aspects blended into "Más De Mil Ojos Nos Vigilan". With noisy passages and coarse processing artifacts, the work goes well beyond the possibilities of the Cello's natural timbre. The solist's virtuosity which finds its counterpart in the electronic treatment of the source as raw material for reassembly.
