Collaborating Works

Zel Art Project was born in Geneva, after the enthusiasm of two composers from the Haute École de Musique, Isandro Ojeda-García and Léo Collin, together with the conductor and pianist Néstor Bayona. The idea from the beginning has been to create a platform for musicians, composers, dancers and artists in order to set up projects for new music.

Sundays on the Edge of the Empire
The idea for this project began from performing the two contrasting Domeniche from Fausto Romitelli. A composer with whom Zel Art Project (ZAP) has an special interest. He revolutionised new music by showing in his compositions a clear influence from spectral music to progressive rock and techno. Later on, the title of the works inspired us to create a story behind the music. With the translated English version Sundays on the Edge of the Empire, the performance will be developed from stating contrasting poles. For example, it will explore the idea of written music versus free improvisation; the contrast between hearing music-seeing performers with hearing music-seeing images; also the two impressions -Prima Domenica and Seconda Domenica- of one composer based on a specific title and the different impressions of each of our resident composers based on the same title. In this occasion, the ZAP team wants to collaborate with the artist Albert Bayona who has recently collaborated with the composer Daniel Cabanzo and our resident composers Isandro Ojeda-García and Léo Collin.

Flux II
2014. Music by Daniel Cabanzo, video by Albert Bayona, 08:50
Flux II is the second version of Flux, from the Latin word “fluxus” which refers to the flow or the idea of transporting either information, materials or energy. Flux is originally on stereo format and it is inspired by the flow of life, where the idea of adapting images to the music becomes stronger, finally achieving an audio-visual work where the images and the music share a synergy which complements each other. Flux plays with the sensation of the coming and going flow of people and situations that are perpetually changing and in constant movement, dying and being born and finally becoming an endless cycle of transformations in a continuous movement of "eternal return".

Flux II és la segona versió de Flux. Prové del llatí «fluxus» que fa referència al flux o la idea de transport ja sigui d'informació, de materials o d'energia. Flux és una peça inicialment en format estèreo inspirada en el flux de la vida, on poc a poc la idea d'adaptar imatges a la música es torna més present i es converteix en una peça audiovisual on les imatges i la música comparteixen una sinergia que es complementa. Flux juga amb la sensació del flux de l'anar i venir de les persones i situacions que constantment estan canviant i en continu moviment, que moren i que neixen i que finalment es converteixen en un cicle de transformacions infinites, en un continu moviment de «eterns retorns».
