Arturo Fuentes - Elisa Urrestarazu - Pilar Rius
Ruido de Levante (2020) Madrid, Spain. 3 December 2020
for tenor saxophone and e-guitar. World premiere
Ruido de Levante (Noise of Levante) is a wavering sonic exploration between brightness and darkness. In this work dedicated to the unusual combination of saxophone and guitar, the colourist palette of the composer Arturo Fuentes changes drastically like the wind that comes from the sea: the Levante. Detailed notes of color are appreciated, as well as a rich expressive range that allows him to investigate the metaphor of light and color, both pictorial-sound materials typical of Fuentes. Sometimes it also surprises us with whispers of nowhere that are mixed between emptiness, noise and harmony. The two instruments fold, intersect, blurring like two bodies floating in the waves.
