Acoustic Space #4

Art Impressions Mahou

September 26, October 24 and November 15, 2012 - 8:00 p.m. /
Nouvel Building, café

Acoustic Space is a music series that brings together national and international proposals that reflect the various facets of contemporary musical creation.

After the editions of 2011, in which musicians such as Peter Broderick, Bugge Wesseltoft, Cibelle, Oy, Mastretta and Lonely Drifter Karen, took part, Museo Reina Sofía once again shows its support for music, with an eclectic sample of proposals that attempt to draw a map of the trends making up today's diverse musical scene.

After summer the second part of the series, Acoustic Space #4, takes place. In it listeners have the opportunity to discover the dubstep, IDM and ambient sounds created by Shigeto using drums and electronics, the confluence of jazz, rock, funk and surf structures developed by the Madrid-based group Dead Capo, and the virtuosity of the saxophonist Colin Stetson, who surpasses the sound limits of the instrument in an exercise of sound experimentation as cathartic as it is accessible.

Acoustic Space #4 Art Impressions Mahou offers, over the coming months, performances by the following artists:


  • Shigeto
    September 26, 2012 - 8:00 p.m.


    Live Arts Concert
    Nouvel Building, café

    The music of the North American Shigeto is based on the combination of rhythmic foundations using drums and percussion, with the construction of structures and sound landscapes that reveal the influence of ambient, IDM, hip hop, dubstep and jazz.

  • Dead Capo
    October 24, 2012 - 8:00 p.m.

    Dead Capo

    Live Arts Concert
    Nouvel Building, café

    The Madrid-based group Dead Capo has become an important feature of Spain's experimental jazz scene after thirteen years of activity. Their music is the result of their assimilating various styles, starting with jazz structures and adding to them elements of rock, sound experimentation, funk, surf and the cinematic influences of soundtracks by Henry Mancini and Lalo Schiffrin.

  • Colin Stetson
    November 15, 2012 - 8:00 p.m.

    Colin Stetson

    Live Arts Concert
    Nouvel Building, café

    Colin Stetson is a virtuoso of the baritone sax, an instrument from which he obtains sounds that are extreme yet accessible, in an exercise of rhythmic and melodical power that make him a musician of great personality, in both his solo work and his collaborations.
