In Ways to listen to a river Nahuel Cano researches the history and meaning of rivers: the Limay and Salado in Argentina and the Vecht in the Netherlands. He translated the research into music and poems, to later build an audiovisual performance in collaboration with filmmaker Juan Fernández Gebauer and Ensemble Modelo62. Ways to listen to a river is a “performative concert”: It consists of live music, video projection, spoken word and actions on stage.
Untitled #335 is part of a series of compositions by Francisco López for blindfolded ensembles. In the obvious absence of score or visual cues, without improvisation and with a crucial need for precision and acuity, musicians rely on attentive and dedicated listening to the music. Listening takes precedence over “reading” and the piece is “directed” collectively. Sound itself becomes structure and temporality.
for experiencers by Lucie Nezri consists of a transition between two very close tunings and is based on an unmeasured notation. Performers are responsible for continually recreating a certain dynamic in rhythm, variety and expressiveness in their way of playing, both on an individual and collective level. The piece therefore depends on a synergy between the different instrumentalists. First ensemble piece by composer Lucie Nezri, for experiencers was commissioned by the GMEA.

As part of the Gaudeamus programme, we are bringing Moving to Orgelpark in Amsterdam. Modelo62 will perform Moving, a composition by Chaz Underriner, who was nominated for the Gaudeamus Award in 2017. Moving is an abstract translation of long travels through the southern US, in which the ensemble and guitarist Nico Couck are surrounded by 10 speakers (2 per musician) and 5 screens. With optical illusions, field recordings and slow ambient music, it is an overwhelming trip for performers and public alike.
