I’m very happy to share that my music will be part of Milo Rau’s next piece Orestes in Mosul.

The Oresteia is not only the one single trilogy that has come down to us from classical antiquity and one of mankind’s greatest tragedies, but it also represents the myth of the foundation of civilisation, whereby the principle of the blood feud, the never-ending cycle of revenge, an eye for an eye, was replaced by the principles of justice, integration and reconciliation. Milo Rau will stage this tragedy with a mixed ensemble of European and Iraqi actors. The process includes research and activities in Mosul, where the Jihadi caliphate of ISIS was declared in 2014.

Ensemble Oihua is a young and dynamic ensemble dedicated to discover and perform contemporary music, engaging the public through their intense and energetic performances. Their debut piece A veces, el silencio es la peor mentira became a key stone and a representation of their engagement and their approach towards the social unrest of today. The eclecticism of their members offers a rich palette of sonic proaches that under the hands of their director melt into one another compounding a strong and firm sonic voice.
