Writing Noises: Ramón Gómez de la Serna and Arseny Avraamov’s Symphony of Sirens
European artists in the 1920s were seeking the abolition of all barriers: art in all forms should inform life and art should have no other boundaries but life itself. In 1922, the Russian composer Avraamov reconfigured the everyday life of the workers in the city of Bakú (then the Soviet Union) as a musical performance, and from Madrid the quintessential Spanish avant-garde writer Ramón Gómez de la Serna (1888-1963), celebrated it. Dr Fernandez will reinterpret Avraamov´s collage of sounds with the words of the writer. Your participation in this event is most welcome!
