Jorge Pombo: Religare

Some years ago we stumbled with Pombo in its spacious and sunny studio in Brooklyn. He seemed to be exhausted and satisfied after peculiar battles: after deconstructing Velázquez and Tintoretto, he was taking heart, designing the maps of his -our- city and the new conceptual city of his new projects. We noted that he stood […]

Everyone carries a piece of the puzzle. Nobody comes into your life by mere coincidence. Trust your instincts. Do the unexpected. Find the others.

Serendipia at Rabbit Hole

Under the glow of the April moon, in the cinematic shadow of the Manhattan Bridge, Alice’s Rabbit Hole opens, we descend into it, and serendipity is revealed: […]

“Hanabi” by Satoko Fujii Tobira

Satoko Fujii weaves and unravels the piano’s strings  like Penélope and waits for the trumpet that appears and hides among metals and whispers of silk kimonos. From her altar of noble and bright woods, for many years, she has been tying the knots of silhouettes of contemporary music and free jazz melodies as birds in the […]

Wine & Women by Judith Samper

Within the Muslim poetry of al-Andalus, the presence of wine as a theme takes an important place along with love and gardens. In fact, wine consumption was not allowed as it would have gone against the Koran and tradition, but it was tolerated as long as it did not lead to serious disorders. In Cordoba […]

ARCA at the Bowery Ballroom. Body music for the active mind.

Let me quote the adjectives and thoughtful musical descriptions of Jon Pareles in the New York Times on ARCA and let me recommend you the whole article: Arca, Valued Facilitator, Steps Out Front: Crashes, whooshes, sampled screams. Mournful minor chords, dissolving into distortion or receding into single notes and silence. Deep throbs of bass under […]

Exapno is a new music community center.  What does that mean?  It’s a place where musicians come to compose, rehearse and perform for the monthly price of a gym membership.  In a city where renting rehearsal space can be prohibitively expensive and isolating, Exapno creates a cheaper, more inviting option.  Though composing is generally seen […]
