David Soler concert at L'Auditori sold out

David Soler revisits Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon album, accompanied by Maria Arnal and Marcel Bagès. Commissioned by L'Auditori for the Jazz Sessions season and based on the classic by British band Pink Floyd. 26 April at 9 pm in Sala 3 Tete Montoliu at L'Auditori.

On Friday 26 April guitarist David Soler will be at L'Auditori to revisit Pink Floyd’s album Dark Side of the Moon, accompanied by musicians such as Maria Arnal and Marcel Bagès. Commissioned by L'Auditori and already sold out.

David Soler’s approach to playing the guitar is unique. Over the past two decades he has forged a name for himself on the main stages in Europe and America with pop and rock bands, whilst gradually developing an avant-garde instrumental language that he calls Denga.

Soler’s influences range from Brian Eno to Robert Fripp and from guitarist Bill Frisell to composers such as Béla Bartók, Olivier Messiaen and Frank Zappa. Drawing from all these influences, Soler will perform his version of this iconic pop-rock album, Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. A pioneer album in the use of multi-layer surround-sound technology that Soler will deconstruct and then put together again within a captivating and sophisticated jazz environment.

David Soler, playing the electric and pedal steel guitar, will be accompanied by the voice of Maria Arnal, with Marcel Bagès on electric guitar and synthesisers, Vicent Pérez on trombone and FX, Ylia on electronics and keyboards and Antonio Torres on drums.
