[d]espacio is a series of four acousmatic pieces with video projections by the composer Ángel Arranz. The series is inpired on four Spanish avant-garde wineries; it was composed between 2009 and 2012: Electronic Study is based on Bodegas Protos by Sir Richard Rogers; Extrusion is based on Marqués de Riscal – Ciudad del Vino by Frank Gehry; S A H, on Bodegas Ysios by Santiago Calatrava, and finally, the last piece, De la luz y del espacio takes inspiration on Bodegas Qumrán by Hernández/Solís.

The entrance to the concert is free and will include a free wine tasting, with a selection of the best wines of these companies. Please, feel free to come by.

As the date of the concert gets closer, this last week, we will speak about De la luz y del espacio, the fourth piece of our acousmatic series with video projection. This is the last piece of the [d]espacio series,  and it has therefore a clear role: being the anti-rythm of all the rest.

The piece is based on two key concepts derived from the interiors of Bodega Qumrán´s building by Hernández/Solís: the first concept is light undergoing a very studied program, turning into constructive matter, such as glass and concrete,  thanks to its rich functionality. The second concept is the architectural program in its strict sense, which aims to fulfill the building´s practical requirements – those of a factory -, as well as the continuity of the main material – concrete -, which re-adapts its interior volumes, generating poliedric gestures, inviting the visitor to perceive rich acoustic spaces. This is so partly because of the resonating characteristics of the main material (concrete), and partly because of its volumetric characteristics.

The premiere of this piece took place last november in the South-Korean city of Busan. The premiere of [d]espacio in Salamanca, and its later performance in The Netherlands, will show the piece integrated in the series for the first time.

>> English version

Va acercándose el día del concierto, y en nuestra última semana hablaremos de la cuarta pieza de nuestra serie acusmática con video proyecciones: De la luz y del espacio. Esta es la úlitma pieza de la serie [d]espacio, por lo tanto cumplía un rol claro, que es la de ser anti-ritmo de todo lo demás.

La pieza está basada en dos conceptos clave derivados de los interiores del edificio Bodegas Qumrán, por Hernández/Solís: el primero, la luz es tratada a través de un programa muy estudiado, cuya prolija funcionalidad hace que sea pensada prácticamente como un material constructivo, tales como el vidrio y el hormigón. Segundo, el programa arquitectónico en sentido estricto, que trata de cubrir tanto las necesidades prácticas del edificio, propias de una factoría, así como una continuidad del material principal -hormigón-, que en todo momento va readaptando sus volumetrías interiores generando a menudo gestos poliédricos, invita al visitante a la percepción de espacios acústicos muy prolijos. Ello es así en parte por las cualidades resonantes del material principal, el hormigón, y en parte también por sus características volumétricas.

Tuvo su estreno por separado el pasado noviembre en la ciudad de Busan, en Corea del Sur. El estreno de [d]espacio en Salamanca y posteriormente en Holanda será la primera vez que presentemos la pieza integrada en el ciclo.
