reConvert was born as a natural extension of the percussion repertoire of the last seventy years, to become a seal of identity that rejects generic definitions and bets on a continuous work between different artists (composers and performers) in which the questioning of the dogmas of the academy is in the foreground.
The duo consists of Lorenzo Colombo and Roberto Maqueda that have actively worked with composers such as Georges Aperghis, Simon Steen Andersen, Michael Maierhof, Daniel Ott, Marko Ciciliani, Luciano Azzigotti, and premiered over a dozen works written for training of emerging young composers. This concert will be a composer-performer collaboration with violinist and multimedia artist Pedro González.
Phasing Bug Sequences is a multimedia project for percussion duo, movement, interactive lighting, video and electronic media of approximately 45 minutes duration. It is divided into 4 sections exploring different approaches to the relationship between the body, technology and sound in the context of the latest research on socSMCs in the field of social neuroscience.
