Memoria Resonante – En Pausa @ la casa encendida

(ES) 

ClaraBrea nos ofrece esta pieza a modo de epílogo sonoro del festival En Pausa. La artista madrileña, especializada en grabaciones de campo, registró mediante un entramado de micrófonos lo acontecido durante las jornadas presenciales del evento celebrado en abril. Tras un particular trabajo de proceso y manipulación de todo ese material, nos presenta una pieza de una hora en la que podremos revivir las sensaciones de la cita.

El festival se articulaba en torno a la reflexión, la disidencia y la conexión a través de la escucha, y en la memoria resonante de Clara quedan representados estos parámetros ya que podemos reconocer partes de las actuaciones y del ambiente sonoro que vivimos esos días: La síntesis de Ylia y Jonathan Fitoussi el viernes en el patio, el concierto de clarinete y charla de Paweł Szamburski en la terraza la mañana del sábado y los conciertos de Menhir y Mecánica Clásica como broche esa misma noche.

Las técnicas empleadas por Clara, desde micrófonos de contacto situados en cristales y tuberías, a micrófonos 360, dotan al material capturado de una entidad propia, que sumada a la postproducción mediante sampling, efectos, filtrado y mezcla, generan una pieza que trasciende la mera documentación y nos adentra en el universo sonoro de una de las creadoras más originales del panorama local.

En Pausa, reflexión, disidencia y conexión a través de la escucha, comisariado por a_mal_gam_a, fue celebrado los días 16 y 17 abril de 2021, presencialmente en La Casa Encendida y virtualmente el domingo 18 a través de la plataforma de radio online 9128.live.

Clara Brea brings us this piece as a sonic epilogue to the En Pausa Festival. Brea is an electronic musician and sound artist with a focus on field recordings, for this occasion she registered, through a microphone system what happened during the on-site concerts of the event held in April. After a particular process and manipulation of the recorded material, she offers us an hour-long piece with which we can relive the sensations of that journey.

The festival was articulated around reflection, dissidence and connection through listening, all these concepts are represented in Clara’s ‘Resonant Memory’ since we can recognize excerpts of the performances and also the sound environments that surrounded us during those days: The synthesis of Ylia and Jonathan Fitoussi on Friday in the courtyard, the clarinet concert and talk by Paweł Szamburski on the terrace on Saturday morning and the Menhir and Mecánica Clásica concerts that took place that evening to put an end to the on-site event and this piece itself accordingly.

The different techniques used by Clara to capture the event including contact microphones attached on glass windows and pipes or 360 microphones, already give the captured material its own entity, and after the post-production processes she made through sampling, effects, filtering, and mixing, we are left with a piece that transcends mere documentation and takes us into the sound universe of one of the most original creators on the local scene.

En Pausa, reflecting, dissenting and connecting through listening, curated by a_mal_gam_a, was held on April 16th and 17th, 2021 at La Casa Encendida and virtually on Sunday 18th through the online radio platform 9128.live.

Here is a wide and varied selection of Field recordings, drones, ambient, hauntology, experimental and early electronic music that I’ve either enjoyed listening to, performed, or recorded through 2019.”
