MAKE MUSIC NY FESTIVAL
East Harlem Cafe
Make Music New York Festival,
the largest music event ever to grace NYC is a unique festival of free concerts in public spaces throughout the five boroughs. This year, over 1000 free performances took place on June 21st, the first day of summer. I performed at the East Harlem Café, a great friendly and funky place that you should check out. Here are some photos. Click on them to expand.
Past events/workshops @ Soundtrack 7
In 2011, I founded and directed Soundtract 7, an alternative cultural space in New York City that served the Latino community through workshops, educational and artistic events. Soundtrack 7 was an experimental space where ideas were exchanged and explored, and where local talent was incubated. Here are photos of some of the events I organized there.
OBEY/OBEDECE - PERFORMANCE
In this performance, I explored the boundaries of personal freedom and social conformity and/or obedience under the conditions of mass consumption and media domination. The production included an array of coordinated special effects, and was conducted in a semi-interactive mode. Writen, produced, and performed by myself.
Winter Art Showcase
Five Stone Wind
This amazing poem, originally written in four voices, was inspired by and dedicated to Merce Cunningham, John Cage, and Shirley Jackson. It's staged here by its author Miguel Falquez-Certain along with actress Clara Samper and myself on the music production.
The actual reading begins at 3:44. There is a long introduction before that. This piece is in Spanish.
