Sergio Barroso: Charangas Delirantes

  • ©, , Charangas Delirantes

Artist Statement:

    Charangas Delirantes: The idea of the piece is a fictional perambulation through the varied and contrasting sound colours and rhythmic world of dancing, applying to these aspects a distorted perspective as a means for possible discovery. Most sounds are derived from sampled and processed piano music materials by Haydn and Chopin. Additional sounds such as brass, percussion and certain piano colours were created by the composer. Charangas are popular dance ensembles in Hispanoamerica, particularly in the Caribbean.
