Collages

On July 25th Resonance FM will broadcast a documentary on the work of Juan Carlos Vasquez. More information here. 

The "Collages" are an acclaimed series of experiments conducted by Juan Carlos Vasquez to prove the digital capabilities of tone expansion in a single acoustic instrument. The technique consists in recording original performances of several works by celebrated composers from the past (for solo instruments), and reinventing the audio files de­constructing the pieces as a collage, using different and complex kinds of digital audio processes to create a post-modern electroacoustic version of the classical piece. As a result the usual acoustic instrument timber is expanded into deep and rich atmospheres using the entire range of frequencies. The collages series are also a sonic application of British painter JMW Turner' technique to use layers of colours and textures to turn everyday landscape into powerful and expressive oneiric fantasies. Past versions were possible thanks to commissions by the Westminster and Chelsea Hospital / Museum (UK) in partnership with Royal College of Music (UK), the Arts Council through the Wiltshire Museum (UK), Polish Artists in London "PAiL" (UK), the Hilltown New Music Festival (Ireland) and the FEast 2013
