The first Nit Electro Sonora was organised by Joan Bagés FUSIL was invited to play as part of a night long festival. Although the web presence of the event was pretty scatty (!) the event was fairly attended by people from the area as it included a lot of local talent, included the conservatoire from a neighbouring town performing an orchestra+electronics piece by Joan Bagés who organised the evening. Iñigo and I drove down from Bilbao to Flix in under four hours (the great Spanish roads put UK roads to shame!). There were alll kinds of music including some free jazz and DJing -which I think should have been on a main stage!! as well as some traditional electroacoustic music with well known guests from France. I didn't particularly enjoy listening to acousmatic music, but if you were a total neofite it was probably an interesting experience as they set up a multichannel system that worked fairly well. Lots of noise makers too, acoustic composition feautured inside the castle and we played outside projecting our video work on one of the castle walls, and all in all a lively evening which I hope will develop into a yearly event. Iñigo and I recorded an EP in Bilbao before going down to Catalunya and played a version of it there. An excerpt below and some pictures. I was taking them but I have not found anybody who took photos of us... pity!
The EP, published by ZAWP Records will be available on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon from 1st September at the latest!
Listen below for some excerpts!
