Otro viento cantará album launches June 1st
I am proud to announce the highly anticipated release of my latest album, "Otro Viento Cantará," on June 1st. This cantata delves into the intricate relationship between humanity and nature, captivating audiences with its profound exploration of the question posed by its co-creator, poet Verónica Zondek: "Are humans strangers to the world or an integral part of it?"
A Powerful Collaborative Effort:
Commissioned in 2022 by the Ibáñez Atkinson Foundation for the "Puedes Cantar" school music program, this deep and expressive 50-minute work involves two university choirs, over 300 talented children, a Latin American ensemble, and a captivating local soprano soloist. "Otro Viento Cantará" had its stunning world premiere last September at the renowned Teatro del Lago, enchanting a crowd of 1,200 with its powerful melodies and poignant themes.
The album features a second production of the piece, recorded in December 2022 at various theaters in the Los Lagos region. It brought together the combined talents of the Austral University of Chile, the University of Los Lagos, and the participation of nine primary school choirs from the picturesque southern Chile. This collaboration showcases the breadth of talent and community spirit fostered by the project.
A Labor of Love:
"Otro viento cantará" is a work filled with love, resonating with the passion and dedication poured into every stage of its creation. From its conception to meticulous rehearsals, from the moving live performances to the careful editing and mastering in the studio, every aspect of this album emanates the heart and soul of my artistic vision.
Expressing immense gratitude, I acknowledge the extraordinary community of artists, young performers, and collaborators who contributed their unique talents and unwavering support to make "Otro viento cantará" possible. Together, we have woven an intricate musical piece that invites listeners to reflect on their own relationship with the natural world and the profound impact humanity has upon it.
Embarking on a Musical Journey:
I invite the audience to embark on a breathtaking musical journey through the delicate interplay of voices and instruments as "Otro viento cantará" transports them to a realm where nature and humanity intertwine. The album will be available on major streaming platforms starting from June 1st, ensuring that this captivating work reaches a wide audience eager to experience its stunning beauty and thought-provoking themes.
