ICElab Workshop at BAC | Music of Juan Pablo Carreño and Carlos Iturralde

February 11, 2012 | 3:00pm
Baryshnikov Arts Center
450 West 37th Street, Suite 501, New York
FREE

ICElab and the Baryshnikov Arts Center throw the doors open to the creative process in this public showing of new works being developed through the ICElab program.

Carlos Iturralde is one of the most promising young composers to emerge from Mexico’s booming experimental music scene in many years. His music explores richly colorful acoustic spectra with an often violent intensity.

Colombian composer Juan Pablo Carreño is quickly emerging as a prodigious and dynamic voice from a region traditionally underrepresented in contemporary music. His varied work explores the intersections between art and politics, drawing on both the violence and the cultural vivacity of his home country.

ICElab receives leading support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, alongside generous funding from the Greenwall Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

ICE’s collaboration with Patricia Alessandrini and Juan Pablo Carreño is supported by the French-American Fund for Contemporary Music, a program of FACE with major support from the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, SACEM, Institut Français and the Florence Gould Foundation.

    "I have a more clear idea about what I'm looking for in that piece, that idea of a disjunctive music, a disjunctive relation between different sonorous planes." - Juan Pablo Carreño following his ICElab workshop.

    ICElab introduces Carlos Iturralde

    "It is just starting, but so far it is very promising above all because I've found nothing but openness to explore ideas and to give continuity to my work in every member of the ensemble that I've gotten in touch with." - Carlos Iturralde

    “Self-fiction, ¿a disjunctive music?”: An Interview with Juan Pablo Carreño

    Colombian composer and 2012 ICElab collaborator Juan Pablo Carreño is quickly emerging as a prodigious and dynamic voice from a region rich in cultural traditions. His varied work explores the intersections between art, politics, latin-american identity, and different cultural heritages, drawing on both the violence and the cultural vivacity of his home country. He has studied composition at Javeriana University in Bogotá and at the Paris Conservatoire, where he was recently awarded first prize in composition. His work has been performed by several leading European ensembles, and featured at the Festival Musique sur Ciel. Check out this interview with Juan Pablo, in which he discusses, among other things, the concept of “disjunctive music”, how the places in which he has lived and worked have inspired his music, and what it means to be a composer in today's world:
