Marco Mezquida, piano
Ernesto Aurignac, alto sax
Ramon Prats, drums
Barcelona Symphony Band
José Rafael Pascual-Vilaplana, conductor
In their first work, entitled M·A·P (2016), the trio demonstrated how deep and unconditional listening can be a powerful tool in the creative process. MAP will be joining the Barcelona Symphony Band at Big Sound to add a new dimension to their repertoire. Through Ernesto Aurignac’s arrangements, the trio’s music travels to new sound universes bathed in symphonic sounds, coloured by the intensity of the big band and filled with popular aromas. In this new context, the MAP’s three musicians are forced to redefine the relationships they establish on the stage and to adapt to a large ensemble with whom to explore new timbric and textural dimensions.
