Bevel instruments can be found in all cultures and periods. The recorder is among the most well known: an instrument of great agility and capacity to adapt to different types of repertoire, along with the possibility of ensemble playing, which in turn evokes the sound of a small human organ.
It is precisely this characteristic sound towards which Windu works, not unlike a craftsman, in order to put it at the service of the music which touches us most. Aiming to move beyond the historical and cultural backround inherent in contemporary or early music alike, the quartet is interested first and foremost in the emotions that arise. For this reason the repertoire encompasses not only original compositions, but arrangements and adaptations as well, along with other instruments and electronic music.
The staging enables us to broadcast the recorder and its characteristic ensemble sound to a wider audience. The stage direction of Iban Beltran and the lighting design of Oriol Ibáñez were instrumental in bringing together the different elements, such as video projections, costume changes, lights and stage design, to créate an all-around performance.
The quartet itself is made up of four musicians with very different backgrounds in the fields of performance, visual arts and culture management, who have joined forced to créate a new and innovative project.
We have a very clear idea of what we want.
The show is about to begin!
