L’AUDITORI PRESENTS THE IMAGE OF THE 2019-2020 SEASON CREATED BY THE ARTIST PEREJAUME AND THE PRODUCTION COMPANY CANADA
The Botànica del so (Botany of Sound) series by Perejaume and an audiovisual created by the prestigious production company Canada reaffirm the commitment of L’Auditori to forging dialogue between the arts.
L’Auditori presented the new image of the 2019-2020 season in an event that took place this morning at [the former garden centre] L’Hivernacle de Sants which brought together the artist Perejaume, representatives from the production company Canada, the composer Pablo Carrascosa, the Frames Percussion quartet and L’Auditori’s director, Robert Brufau.
The artist Perejaume was commissioned to create the image for the season, which is entitled Botànica del so (Botany of Sound) which plays with the concept of wind blowing through trees and making music.
The collaboration with Perejaume highlights the merit of encouraging dialogue between the arts, and it consolidates L’Auditori’s goal to build a unified and cross-cutting artistic projectthat accommodates all disciplines.
Perejaume has created an image for the season and also one for each of the areas included in L’Auditori’s programme, from the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra and the Barcelona Symphony Band to the Chamber Music and Early Music seasons, OBCPops, Jazz Sessions, Escenes and Sampler Sèries.
Canada produces the video for the new season
To further advance this dialogue between artistic disciplines and to provide an innovative perspective, L’Auditori commissioned the prestigious and multi-award-winning Barcelona production company Canada to make an audiovisual. The company is renowned for its ground-breaking aesthetics and pursuit of new artistic languages.
Directed by Héctor Herce, the video takes Perejaume’s concepts of nature and wind as a starting point and develops a three-minute story that departs from the customary narrative of classical music.
At the forefront of new creation
One of L’Auditori's goals is to establish itself as the voice of the country’s musical modernity, which it is achieving through its commitment to new creation. As an example of this, the season has been presented in L’Hivernacle de Sants, a space close to the concept of the plant nursery and the nature that can be seen in the image devised by Perejaume.
The presentation of L’Auditori’s new image also coincides with the release of tickets for the upcoming season, which will start on 9 May.
