Lecture Performance and talk in English
Macarena Montesinos: Memories of an Amnesiac

In Memories of an Amnesiac, the cellist, improviser, visual artist and researcher Macarena Montesinos presents her most intimate side, in a format between a concert and lecture performance, combining free improvisation with texts. She reflects on questions related to the world of sound and music, through her own thoughts in dialogue with other thinkers, philosophers, composers, improvisers and musicians. Is music something more than the organization of sounds? Can sounds live without music? Can music live without sounds? Does music provide something more than emotions? Is music the art of memory?

Her lecture performance is taking place in the course of exploratorium’s Reading Circle Improvisation. After the performance there will be space for further talk and discussions. Everyone who does not regularly attend the Reading Circle Improvisation is also invited to this. The performance and the talk are in English.

Macarena Montesinos graduated in Fine Arts and is currently a researcher at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Vigo, where she studies the relationship and correspondences that exist between graphic scores and sound improvisation. At the moment she is visiting exploratorium berlin for a research stay. She is a member of different formations and orchestras of contemporary and experimental music. Today she has a dozen albums released on European and American record labels such as Creative Sources (Portugal), Pan y Rosas (USA) or Setola de Maiale (Italy).
