And this concert will also feature the premiere of a new work by Argentinian Patricia Martinez – recipient of Music Current 2018 commission – written especially for RETRO DISCO.

Patricia Martinez is a prominent active composer, interdisciplinary artist and performer based in Buenos Aires. Her works has emerged, in part, from an experimental process of ‘stripping-down,’ which involves a degree of risk-taking, in that the resulting music is left somewhat vulnerable in terms of its expressive identity. She thinks any sound dimension is unequivocally connected to its stage/performance aspect and internally constructed with interdisciplinary living organic entities as inner-materials.

“Martinez’s work pulls itself out of nothing and goes forth armed from that breath.” (La Nación)
