MIA 2012

Last June, I had the honour of participating on the Improvised Music Festival MIA, in Atouguia da Baleia. This was the 3rd edition.

Poetry and Musical Improvisation

“A Cena do Ódio” (The Scene of Hatred), written by Almada Negreiros, gave birth to a meeting between improvised music and declamation, in the beautiful city of Peniche.
The text was divided in several sections which provided some guidelines for improvisation. It was a great pleasure for me to be part of this project – PREC (Projecto Ressonante Experimental Criativo)- which stands for (something like) Creative Experimental Resonant Project.

This concert also served as a promotion of the upcoming MIA 2011 (improvised music encounters) in the nearby village of Atouguia da Baleia, a festival that I had the honour of participating in its first edition, last year, having then posted some videos from it here and here.

Thank you to all these wonderful friend-musicians who invited me for this performance:

Paulo Ramos: declamation
Paulo Chagas: flute, oboe and alto sax
Fernando Simões: trombone
Paulo Duarte: guitar
João Pedro Viegas: clarinet and bass clarinet
