PERFORMANCES

In my experience, composition is about incubating a subjective space. A mature image of an abstract space informs the creative process affecting inevitably all gesture. It also embeds the expression with the characteristics and personality of the emergent subjective space.
     In the book The "Poetics of Space" Gaston Bachelard explains how subjective spaces are self-contained universes where logic can't be totally understood through the lenses of psychoanalysis and rational thinking. In this sense, each subjective space has its own logos and the discovery of these capricious logics represents an important stage in my work.
     Subjective spaces are abstract containers, and they both represent a critical piece in my creative process. Therefore, I chose performance as the format that would help me communicate the symbolism behind each piece, and also strength the sensation of containment while performing my music.

First explorations in the creation of immersive interdisciplinary performances were all site specific performances: sound and visual interventions in unusual spaces. Starting with the intervention of a commercial gallery in the historical center of Lima city in 2006, and then exploring other spaces as an old storage for mine machinery, a public garage, the main plaza of Iquitos city located in the peruvian Amazon, among others.
     Also, a wide rage of scenic formats were explored during the process: from a small public toilet with 15 listeners to a sold out opera house. Visual and sound experimentation was achieved through the selection of an ongoing changing group of interdisciplinary artists and techniques (throughout the years I named this group Colectivo OIE). In this sense, performances function as cross-disciplinary laboratories, a space for collective creation, where collaboration becomes an important element of every final project.
