“Nous paradigmes d’ improvisació col·lectiva usant sistemes musicals interactius”
Limited Capacity seats available

It will cover collective musical improvisation  strategies, participating in an unconventional ensemble, in which the instruments are interconnected with each other in a circle, and a computer system manages the turns of each performer and how the instruments’  influence each other.

Each participant can contribute to the system with his instrumental performance, and through a sensor system designed especially for the workshop, diferent aspects of the participants’ performance can be modified or can influence the overall performance of the interactive musical System.

This complex network of mutual influences, of convergent or divergent desires of all participants, becomes a process sometimes collaborative, sometimes unpredictable.

Àlex Barrachina, Josep Maria Comajuncosas and Roger Pibernat are members of the Barcelona Laptop Orchestra.

Premiered on 2008, one of the aims of the Barcelona laptop Orchestra is to stablish a Meeting point for researchers, digital luthiers, performers and composers, to explore new control interfaces, new paradigms of networked performances.

Lluís Gómez: “El Fiddle en el Bluegrass”

Bill Monroe was the creator of Bluegrass music, and the fiddle is an essential part. Although some people often think of the banjo, when Monroe was asked what instrument defined his music, with no doubt, he responded: the fiddle.

The roots are found in Arthur Smith, Tommy Magness and Posey Rorer, among others, but it is in 1945 with Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt, Earl Scrugss and Chubby Wise on the fiddle, that the  High Lonesome Sound begins.

A tour of Fiddlers who created this style, Benny Martin, Paul Warren, Kenny Baker, Scotty Stoneman until today, the classics, its evolution, Bluegrass Rules!

Enric Giné - String recording and sound reinforcement

Recording and amplifying string instruments has always been, and remains to be, a challenge.

In contrast with most common electrical instruments that were actually born with amplification (guitar, bass, etc), string instruments extend they roots to the dawn of music and have strongly defined its dynamics, timber, radiation patterns and full personality over a vast period of centuries of acoustic music tradition. That means that both musicians and audience have a rather defined concept of how such instruments should sound, something that can be both helpful and a hindrance. Along with this reality, a quest for “tonal purity” (i.e. minimizing the “electrical feeling” of poor amplification or recording) has always been something sought. Many recording techniques and technologies, from microphones to amplifiers, account for this quest.

But, on the other side, with the advent of new musical languages and aesthetics, string instruments are slowly broadening its scope and becoming vastly processed or morphed, as well as becoming triggers for new sounds (synthesized sounds and samplers). This can be a radical depart from traditional aesthetics and thus requires especially designed pickups, clip-on microphones and sensors.

In this session we will try to cover some of these topics from our personal experience in the field of sound recording and amplification, also referring to past experiences being presented in the ESMUC.

This workshop with Francesc Tomas Panxito (Mexico City and Argelaguer, Garrotxa). A session based on the experiential and dynamic transmission of dance and parade music with bowed string instruments. We will experiment with the techniques of Audiolearning and enjoy the collective construction of a harmonic and rhythmic texture from specific tunes, some of them in force in the present traditional music,  and others alive thanks to the notes of the past violin players. This workshop is open to players of bowed string instruments of all levels of training and style, always willing to work without a score and feel able to learn and share the experience positively.

Jaime del Blanco - El violí i el Blues

The music of the Mississippi Delta and the have lead to most styles of music named as modern from thje twentieth century to the present. Ragtime, Jazz, Bluegrass, Rhythm & Blues, Rock & Roll, Funk, Heavy Metal, Hip Hop, Country and Pop drink directly from the sources of the Blues.

The violin has a fundamental role in the origins of the blues due to the influence of European folk music and the expressive possibilities of the instrument (vibrato, slide, bend). Forgotten musicians such as Will Batts and Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown are key witnesses that demonstrate its use in the purest blues and its roots.

In the workshop we will work strategies and stylistic devices that are generic in contemporary music:

* The Blue Note. Materials to improvise: the minor pentatonic scale, blues scale, Doric and mixolidian modes, symmetric modes and its easy application to the  handles of the bowed string instruments.

* Coup d’arc swing

* System Style: vibrato, slide, bend.

* Accompanying: voicings, walking bass

* Bluesmen  fiddlers: Louisiana, Texas and Memphis.

* Hot Violinists in Barcelona of the 40’s: James Vilas, José Antonio Puertas and Joseph Bou

Hanneke Cassel i Mike Block

Hanneke Cassel (fiddle) and Mike Block (cello/voice) have been playing music together since 2007.  Together, these dynamic performers present a diverse and exciting show featuring traditional and original music that draws from their Celtic, Amerciana, and Classical backgrounds.

“EXUBERANT AND RHYTHMIC, somehow both wild and innocent, delivered with captivating melodic clarity and an irresistible playfulness,” says the Boston Globe about Hanneke Cassel’s playing. Such charismatic fiddling has brought the native Oregonian many honors and awards.  She is the 1997 U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion, she holds a Bachelors of Music in Violin Performance from Berklee College of Music, and she has performed and taught across North America, Europe, New Zealand, Australia, and China.

IN ADDITION TO HER SOLO ACT, Hanneke tours regularly with Baroque/Celtic group Ensemble Galilei, and has performed with the Cathie Ryan Band, Cherish the Ladies, Alasdair Fraser, and Matt Glaser and the Wayfaring Strangers.

HAILED BY YO-YO MA as the “ideal musician of the 21st Century”, Mike Block is a pioneering multi-style cellist, composer, and educator living in Boston. While still studying at the Juilliard School, Mike joined Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, and shortly thereafter also joined Mark O’Connor’s Appalachia Waltz Trio, which he played in for over three years. Mike has also toured extensively with Darol Anger’s Republic of Strings and The Knights orchestra.   Hanneke and Mike create sounds on the cutting edge of acoustic music, while retaining the integrity and soul of the Scottish tradition.

Anna Costal - La música pop al segle XIX i el paper dels seus intèrprets

In the first half of the nineteenth century theaters all over Europe alternate Italian opera, magic tricks and masked balls, while parks and gardens on the outskirts of large cities organize concerts which gather  various social classes in a new model of leisure and entertainment: the so-called society of the Spectacle.

The success of Jullien’s large concerts in London, Musard’s in Paris,  an of Straus’s in Vienna is part of a new musical concept, while their leaders, who often assume the role of composers, conductors and performers become media stars, in the same sense this concept is currently given.

In several European cities, often with a combination of theater and artisans musicians, often related to the construction of instruments, touring orchestras are alo organized to offer fashionable dance around the big cities. The old figure of the violinist and dance teacher of eighteenth century transforms resulting in a core of strings (two violins and bass), to which are added two solo woodwind instruments (two flutes and two clarinets) and various brass instruments.  The role of these violinists in these groups leave aside the melody and the solo role to become the rhythmic and harmonic foundation of polkas, waltzes and schotisch, with a sound that necessarily has to be imposed to the strength of the wind instruments.

The conference “Pop music in the nineteenth century and the role of the performers” will show several examples of this new documents and sounds of this popular music culture, with special attention to the strings. The recovery of the nineteenth century dance and performative analysis of this music begins to awaken interest in the  international musicological community to open new and interesting research towards the first manifestations of contemporary pop music of the era.

 Anna costal i Fornells is professor of Catalan Traditional Music and Catalan Music of the XIXth and XXth centuries at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya (ESMUC).  She collaborates with the Robert Gerhard Center for the promotion and dissemination of the Catalan musical heritage.  She also performs the tenora and is a member  of the Cobla Vila d’Olesa.

Oriol Saña - Gipsy Chops!

There is a corrent bow technique that has nothing to do with the traditional bow stroke, and in its evolution, transforms the violin in an enough harmonic support to self-accompany or accompany other instruments. This technique is derived from a rhythm calledchop which is a technique used in traditional American music, especially the bluegrass, invented in 1966 by violinist Richard Green. The chop (literal translation: “cut”) is based on the use of rhythmic sound that occurs when you play upbow and downbow vertically in the area of the frog (bottom). Currently this technique is in full development, and it is used by violinists such as Christian Howes, Darol Anger, Casey Driessen, Richard Greene, Oriol Saña …

In this workshop, we will work diferent exercises of this technique applied to jazz and modern music, thus working different harmonic accompaniments and sound effects.

 Oriol Saña os professor of violin jazz and modern music at the  Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya (ESMUC), the first center that has implemented theBachelor degree in this specialty in Spain. More information at http://oriolsana.com.

Anaís Falcó - El violí que fa ballar

In different regions of the Mediterranean, we can find the figure of the musician, who individually or with minimal training, fulfills all the musical functions of the ritual involved in a party. In Catalonia there are different cases, and among the instruments played by these musicians, we can find the violin. As they played for dancing and the relationship which was established between musician and dancers is what I will describe. At the same time, I want this explanation to be a pretext to reflect on the activity of contemporary playing to dance

“Nous paradigmes d’ improvisació col·lectiva usant sistemes musicals interactius”
Limited Capacity seats available

It will cover collective musical improvisation  strategies, participating in an unconventional ensemble, in which the instruments are interconnected with each other in a circle, and a computer system manages the turns of each performer and how the instruments’  influence each other.

Each participant can contribute to the system with his instrumental performance, and through a sensor system designed especially for the workshop, diferent aspects of the participants’ performance can be modified or can influence the overall performance of the interactive musical System.

This complex network of mutual influences, of convergent or divergent desires of all participants, becomes a process sometimes collaborative, sometimes unpredictable.

Àlex Barrachina, Josep Maria Comajuncosas and Roger Pibernat are members of the Barcelona Laptop Orchestra.

Premiered on 2008, one of the aims of the Barcelona laptop Orchestra is to stablish a Meeting point for researchers, digital luthiers, performers and composers, to explore new control interfaces, new paradigms of networked performances.

"El cens de constructors d’instruments musicals com a primer pas per l' associació empresarial"

L’elaboració d’un cens català de constructors i fabricants d’instruments musicals com a primer pas per l’associacionisme professional. 

Des de les primeres referències que tenim de gremis de constructors d’instruments musicals al S.XIV  a Catalunya, l’organització empresarial d’aquest sector ha passat per diferents fases caracteritzades per una manca d’acord sectorial. Arquitectes i musics, per posar  un exemple, s’ha organitzat sota una mateixa denominació independentment del la tipologia d’edifici que construïen o la música que interpretaven i composaven. 

Es clar que aquesta avinença els hi ha donat fruïts a nivell organitzatiu ja que en poc temps han aconseguit associacions potents, institucions molt respectades i centres de formació reconeguts internacionalment que actualment ningú s’atreveix a posar en dubte. 

Com a observador, crec que les competències instrumentals, si parlem en termes d’espai europeu d’educació superior que tenen assolides els constructors i dissenyadors d’instruments musicals són molt diferents, segons els instruments que es construeixen, però les fonamentals són compartides. La construcció, restauració o reparació, el client, el fet que molt sovint les seves creacions sonaran plegades en les mateixes acústiques o els materials, productes i tècniques emprades els apropen tècnicament però també la manera de ser i de fer. 

En un mon cada cop més viu on l’esforç , l’honestedat i el  rigor professional seran imprescindibles, al meu parer i per l’experiència d’haver-me topat amb uns quants, els  constructors són exemple d’aquestes virtuts, ja que en cada moment del seu procés constructiu aquestes capacitats son posades a prova i no només tenen que satisfer al seus clients sinó a ells mateixos, que transformats en oients podent escoltar el seu disseny. Podríem comparar-ho amb la suma de l’emoció que té l’actor per la reacció de l’espectador i la del propi espectador gaudint-ne i conscient que ell n’és en gran part responsable. 

L’altre aspecte que cal endreçar és la diversitat de camins que existeixen per que un constructor o fabricant d’instruments musicals arribi a vendre el seu instrument al seu client i ens trobem amb intermediaris que aporten un valor afegit al producte i fan viable la seva comercialització però també amb entrebancs com algunes exclusivitats abusives, excés de mitjancers que encareixen el producte i allunyen al músic del constructor perdent en el camí la comunicació entre un i l’altre. Una institució forta podria regular aquests processos a benefici del professional com està passant actualment en el mon de les discogràfiques i empreses de manegament que o aporten un valor afegit real entre el músic i el oient o tenen els dies comptats. 

M’imagino en un futur, una associació, que agrupi a aquests professionals, interactuï amb la societat  i impulsi iniciatives com l’adaptació dels drets de patent, beneficis fiscals, els convenis amb universitats per a la recerca, la protecció d’ entorns naturals per assegurar matèries primeres,  aportació a les normatives d’activitat industrial i per que no una Escola Superior de Construcció d’Instruments Musicals. 

Soc optimista per que el camí ja està començat per entitats vinculades a aquest sector que funcionen molt bé, però no deixa de ser curiós, que aquestes mateixes accepten acords científics per classificar i estudiar els instruments musicals i  per descomptat com tocar-los però en canvi els hi costa trobar un consens per  interconnectar els professionals que els construeixen i elaborar un simple cens per convocar-los a obrir el debat.

Quatre projectes sobre el Fiddle

“String Crucible”, Blanca Altable

The exhibition on educational projects on the Fiddle at the Barcelona Fiddle Congress will address the past of the world of fiddle in the middle of the peninsula and the transformation unfolding it. I would also like to present ideas about creating new violin traditions and discuss thoughts on the future of the world from the perspective of the String Crucible.

 “Fiddle gathering, Anaís Falcó

The fiddle gathering is a Meeting of violins and related instruments that creates a space for learning, sharing, celebration and immersion in the environment in many way,s typical of the popular Catalan region and nearby places. Workshops are conducted with experienced musicians and teachers, colloquia and lectures, concerts, dances, dining, soirees, exhibitions, dance workshops, etc.. All this allows for a complete immersion in the instrument and its popular features.

 “Transversal music” Núria Balcells

 TRANSVERSAL starts in 2009 with the motivation to interconnect string musicians from around the country (north-south, east-west) who wish to open borders and string musicians from around the country (north-south, east-west) and who wish to open stylistic and music-cultural borders to learn improvisation resource,s chops, themes in jazz, bluegrass, old-time as well as other fiddle styles.

 From an open and plural Transveral Music organizes intensive courses and concerts with major international musicians and educators.

 During these years, there were more than 100 students participating, including Ernesto Briceño, Cassey Driessen, Christian Howes, Christoph Mallinguer, Christian Kronreif, Mike Barnett, Alex Hagreaves, Gilles Apap, Brittany Haas, Yann Falquet, Yody March, Oriol Saña and  Marta Roma.

 Master classes and concerts are itinerant across multipurpose sites in Barcelona and their gatherings take place in a family home in Freixenet, Segarra, surrounded by nature and silence.

 “Galicia Fiddle”, Alfonso Franco

In Galicia the king instrument (or, more accurately, the queen) is the tambourine and, with it, all the other percussion items which have accompanied for centuries singing and bagpipes in the dances of every nook and cranny of this green and rainy land. Since the end of the last century, the presence of the fiddle in Galician folk music has had a steady rise. Up to a number of years ago, it was always used as a solo instrument or as an accompaniment to singing in the traditional style of blind people, but it has recently shown its enormous potential for dance music thanks to the great versatility provided by the bow. With ricochet or spiccato/sautillé we can mimic the strokes of the tambourine

Electric strings + Cello Hero

CelloHero és una proposta artística que neix a partir del projecte final de carrera de l’Àlex Rodríguez Flaqué – estudiant d’interpretació clàssica i contemporània de violoncel a l’Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya-, i que es regeix sota la direcció d’Enric Giné.

El projecte parteix de dos objectius fonamentals: explorar l’adaptació de nous recursos tecnològics i electrònics en un instrument clàssic com és el violoncel, i trobar un espai d’equilibri entre la música electrònica, l’experimental i la clàssica, en un sentit estètic i formal.

Aquesta tecnologia no s’ha utilitzat en obres similars per a violoncel, i per aquest motiu s’ha volgut crear una obra de música totalment nova, sota la direcció artística de l’Àlex Rodríguez Flaqué i amb composicions realitzades per ell mateix, juntament amb aportacions dels seus companys de grup Cels Campos i Xavier Bonfill, i del productor iGGY RoT.

El format resultant és el d’un Concert per a Violoncel i Electrònica dividit en 6 moviments que ens pot recordar a les característiques obres solistes del S.XIX, però amb un llenguatge i tractament tímbric renovats.

Cada vegada més, professionals i estudiants de la música tenen la necessitat d’aprendre altres llenguatges com el de la improvisació. Aquesta taula rodona va enfocada a reflexionar sobre com podem fer un bon disseny curricular i preparar unitats didàctiques. Conèixer i debatre sobre algunes estratègies pedagògiques i metodologies antiquades i noves. Adquirir l’habilitat de poder saber seqüenciar objectius, continguts, activitats i criteris d’avaluació i ser conscients de quines són les millors eines per aconseguir un aprenentatge de qualitat i significatiu per acostar a estudiants i professionals de la música que no han tingut vivències amb el món de la improvisació, en facin d’aquest llenguatge un horitzó nou.

Pep O'Callahan - Introducció del llenguatge de jazz en llenguatge clàssic

The teaching of music education in the field of jazz and modern music began to develop in the U.S. around 1950 in schools such as the famous Berklee College of Music in Boston as well as improvisation methods as the successful series Aebersold jazz (70), among others. The importance of acquiring resources to learn to improvise was modeling some teaching methods that put emphasis on issues that perhaps were previously unknown or simply neglected. Here in Catalonia, in the late 70s, schools such as Zeleste, t l’Aula de Musica Moderna i Jazz i el Taller de Musics,  were pioneers in trying to understand these new methodologies and to propose some teaching methodologies geared directly to grasp, play , compose and arrange music within these areas. Since then to the present time, many things have happened and these methods have been extended in a natural way, and progressively for all levels involved in music education, enriching and giving more possibilities to music teaching at the elementary and middle levels.

However, in our experience, the application and understanding of these methodologies  is still insufficient in the basic general education of music. It still continues dragging some “inertia” when basing the thickness of the elementary and middle levels  on “traditional” methods of music theory and harmony. Very vàlid methods, but mainly focused on the comprehension and production of so-called “classical music.”

 Our idea is that in deepening the understanding of the language of jazz and modern music and its teaching methods, we can achieve a balance and a more sòlid and complete educational potential full.

 In addition, we believe that in this way we may also improve the feeling that students have about the real connection between the music “they study” and the music which are usually more exposed to (usually rooted in “Modern or Jazz”). Normally this link to a type of “closer” music means that the motivation to study and the desire to overcome the difficulties is greater.

 Pep O’Callaghan teaches jazz analysis, analysis of modern music, jazz improvisation, aural perception and combo at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya (ESMUC).  More information:http://www.myspace.com/pepocallaghan

Quartet de Corda de l'Esmuc i Joan Sanmartí

The image of an Intersection serves as a metaphor for me to share, find, discover, "hello", and separation, farewell, absence, "goodbye."

The music of this work is born with the will to continue exploring the boundaries of jazz and chamber music and improvisation. Always attentive to new trends and all contemporary music, seeking a meeting point between tradition and Vanguard.

Intersection is a project with original music by Joan Sanmartí, is a set of pieces born fruit of personal, moments shared with close persons, of encounters with distant persones ultimately musical intersections with artists from various backgrounds and great talent.

Eclectic Colour Orchestra

ECO is the encounter between classical and jazz. A string orchestra accompanied by a modern rhythm section that fuses musical tones of different areas. ECO is tradition and innovation, an ensemble that plays an eclectic repertoire , finding a personal and genuine character .

The Eclectic Colour Orchestra mixes original compositions with known Standard versions of contemporary music. It is presented as a String Big Band , which takes over from the jazz- anticThird Stream with current and funk sounds of Latin music. His album Blank Canvas (time Record 2013 ) combines a wide palette of colors to be presented as a unit . The sweetness of the strings is at the service of syncopated rhythms , and lyricism stands as the main channel to seduce the listener . The different orchestral textures bring closer the swing of the decade of the 30 to the French Impressionism of Debussy or Ravel.

ECO has collaborated on the album Rise ( Harmonia Mundi 2012 ) of the trumpeter . It has also composed the soundtrack to events such as the celebration of the IAAF , International Association of Athletics Federations , and has appeared on programs such as Buenafuente (2010 ) or TV3 Marathon (2011 ) .

The power of the orchestra is at the service of the open harmonies of jazz to result in an aesthetic language of its own, able to tackle any artistic challenge in a  versatile way.

Carol Duran - "El violí de tradició oral als Països Catalans"

The violin is a versatile, portable and lightweight instrument, and therefore many traditions of violin, based on oral transmission, have coexisted for centuries with different traditions, cultures and social stratum.

 In our environment, very few violinists of oral tradition, with local styles and repertoires, have come down to us. We can mention two of the most representative and studied among  the old violinists in the Pyrenees: Peret White and Jiminy Farre. In addition, there are other traditions: in the tales of southern Valencia and neighboring communities, in the formation of fandango in the Balearic Islands, and throughout our country, where we find the violin as an alternative tool to many folk musicians, primarily wind.

 In this workshop, we will review the music of oral tradition in the Catalan Countries where the violin has or has had an important role. We will look forward to see what is the future that we need to build together to consolidate the popular violin at home.

 Carol Duran is violinist, graduated in Humanities and Promotion and Management from l’Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya. Professor of  and traditional and popular music of the Generalitat de Catalunya  and Taller de Músics.

“Nous paradigmes d’ improvisació col·lectiva usant sistemes musicals interactius”
Limited Capacity seats available

It will cover collective musical improvisation  strategies, participating in an unconventional ensemble, in which the instruments are interconnected with each other in a circle, and a computer system manages the turns of each performer and how the instruments’  influence each other.

Each participant can contribute to the system with his instrumental performance, and through a sensor system designed especially for the workshop, diferent aspects of the participants’ performance can be modified or can influence the overall performance of the interactive musical System.

This complex network of mutual influences, of convergent or divergent desires of all participants, becomes a process sometimes collaborative, sometimes unpredictable.

Àlex Barrachina, Josep Maria Comajuncosas and Roger Pibernat are members of the Barcelona Laptop Orchestra.

Premiered on 2008, one of the aims of the Barcelona laptop Orchestra is to stablish a Meeting point for researchers, digital luthiers, performers and composers, to explore new control interfaces, new paradigms of networked performances.

Popular Music and unusual instruments: the fabulous history of the trumpet violin”

 This concert is a proposal, as a soloist, of violinist from Burgos Diego Galaz, in which the selection of traditional, and his own, melodies make a trip through time and from the different geographical locations of popular music.

 The instruments used for the occasion are a collection of unusual violins that will make us remember how extensive and original can be the search of the human being for new sounds in the form of gadgets as incredible as the Phono Violin, Sthroviol, Scarg Violin Scarf , Saw, wàter violin, Ukelín, psaltery .. etc..

 The trip also continues through the different styles where the conventional violin transforms in shape, sound and technique. From the most popular rhythms to current technology.

An opportunity to learn, discover, listen and smile.
