Jazz and painting shake hands in the Suite Miró, a series of pieces inspired by works from the Catalan artist, composed by Ignasi Terraza and played by his Trio. The Suite Miró premiered last year at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and is presented in Madrid for the first time.
In 1966 Duke Ellington visited Joan Miró in his Nice studio, and played a couple of tunes surrounded by some of his sculptures. This meeting, captured on film, serves as an introduction to the performance created by Ignasi Terraza: a production to make the mind wonder as it imagines Miró’s work through music and poetic description.
In a secluded hall cloaked in semi-darkness, the rhythms and sounds produced by the Trio are submerged in the imagery of Miró’s work, recreated through poetic descriptions and thought-provoking pieces written by Carlota Polo, as well as images created by the video artist David Cid.
The performance is offered to visitors free of charge thanks to the support of the Orange Foundation and the ONCE Foundation and represents an inclusive cultural initiative aimed at people with or without visual impairments. One and all are invited to share the mental images and sound creations composed by the blind pianist Ignasi Terraza via the world of Miró.
