Rosa is a reflection of systemic inequity built in the healthcare system. I witnessed how Covid-19 affected societies in a different way. I got to be in Ensenada-Mexico, Boston-USA and Reykjavik-
Iceland during 2020 and saw the disparities between these countries. In some places, basic human needs became luxurious and by consequence the ones that couldn't afford them did not have access. In contrast, other places who have free healthcare and a quick governmental response had very low deaths.
Use of minimalistic visual material as a soft focus for the audience as well as cues for subtle changes in the instrumental sound world.
In bor ders I combine elements from an installation and a concert to critically reflect on nationalism, migration, and tradition, hoping that by displaying divisiveness a connection with the audience can be created through which dehumanization, rooted in destructive forms of borders in the wake of inevitable global tensions, can be questioned. Messages of personal significance convey universal, uncompromising values that people can identify with each other. I grew up in a patriarchal authoritarian country still recovering from colonialism, and in bor ders I construct a practice that advocates for decolonization in music and fluidity.
de.construction is a set of works exploring different parts of the instrument through new playing techniques, using different amplification methods. The work is informed by the philosophy behind the word deconstruction which means breaking down or analyzing something and dismantling traditional modes of thought. To deconstruct an opposition is to explore the tensions and contradictions between the hierarchical order assumed.
separation is a multimedia event for bassoon, violin, movement, and live sound processing,
performed by Mari Garrigue (SK), Cameron Anderton (SCT), and Ana Luisa Diaz de Cossio (MX). separation focuses on deconstructing the action or state of moving apart into emotional, political, geographical, and conceptual perspectives. The aim of the work is to educate, and to create a connection between collective and audience in order to address dehumanization rooted in destructive forms of separation, particularly in the wake of certain global tensions.
separation bears personal significance to everyone, but it is with its universal, uncompromising values that we can identify with each other. Our goal is to share personal interpretations of separation, letting ourselves become inspired by both personal connotations and shared senses. Through experimentation with physical separation alongside more conceptual visions of such, executed through sound and movement, we wish to create a space in which to communicate and connect with the audience in a new, expressive way. Our aim is to dissolve hierarchical structures present throughout all artistic mediums and communities, with the intention of reshaping the role of, and relationships between, artists and audience.
