The first edition of the Intermúsicas Festival, which will take place between today and November 23, seeks to bring the public closer to 100 projects that include classical, popular, contemporary, electroacoustic, experimental music and Latin American song, and for this it will be held in different spaces such as the Museo de la Cárcova, Usina del Arte, Museo Casa Roca or Teatro del Globo, and in hospitals and prisons.
“The festival is an invitation to listen to music in a different way, in which the public will have a lot to decide. You will be able to choose between tour concerts through gardens and galleries, concerts in unexpected places and in traditional venues, with proposals that have participatory scenic devices, in addition, with the possibility of getting to know those of us who make music up close. Many of the proposals include unpublished music”, he maintains. Victoria Gandiniartist and general producer of the festival that is organized by the Department of Musical and Sound Arts (DAMus) of the National University of Arts (UNA).
They stand out: the 100 years of the vibraphone, through a repertoire that includes jazz, incidental and academic music in one of the most special percussion instruments; a concert of bells and inaudible music; two tour concerts in gardens: one with works by composers and dissidences by the Ensemble Magma and another with diverse proposals ranging from classical music to experimental Latin American song.
Also, a musical game with sculptures from a museum so that each visitor puts together their own concert; Unpublished Troilo and the Tango Composers; piano concert with Argentine and Latin American works and ¡Cinderellaaaa…!, an opera by the Argentine composer Marta Lambertini, who picks up this popular classic by reinventing it in her own language.

Concert of bells and inaudible music: It is a game of sound contrasts, which begins with guitar micro-concerts for a spectator, face to face with the musician, and ends with its sound opposite: a concert of bells on the esplanade of the church at by Federico Orio and musicians from DAMus.

Music for Nature: With nature as a framework and as a trigger element for the creation and selection of the repertoire, this concert invites the public to rediscover the natural environment of the Cárcova Museum through sound interventions that merge with the landscape. Here, nature functions as an environment and as an idea and takes shape through music that ranges from expressions of Central European classicism to experimental Latin American songs.
-Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd October, 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the Museo de la Cárcova (Av. España 1701, Costanera Sur)
Walkers: sound tours: Music appears and disappears through the museum spaces inviting those who enter the room to create their own sound tours. The interventions emerge from the sculptures mingling with those who walk through the room. A concert that is as many concerts as listeners.
-Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 October, 5:00 p.m., at the Cárcova Museum (Av. España 1701, Costanera Sur)
¡Cinderellaaaa…!: Opera by the Argentine composer Marta Lambertini, collects this popular classic reinventing it in its own language. The use of the baroque ensemble as an instrument is an opportunity to meet with a contemporary musicality. Her cast immerses us in a story that, despite the fact that we already know everything that will happen, still has a lot to tell. It is the golden closing for an afternoon of enjoyment between the forests of the waterfront and the gardens of the Cárcova Museum.
