What is this project about?
Hello everyone! Thanks for checking out this project!
My name is Verónica Cagigao and we are only one (BIG) step away from obtaining the help we need to carry out a very special project: Wood that Sings, the recording of my first marimba CD album.
Created with all my heart and hard work, I intend to gather these last few years of work, which I have dedicated to becoming closely acquainted with this instrument, into a varied and interesting programme. I will include works from international composers such as Keiko Abe, Enmanuel Sejourné and G. Stout; as well as new pieces from big names in the world of composition: Dori Díaz, Mario Carro and Guillo Espel.
I am creating this album with the conviction that we need to make the marimba better known everywhere in the world. Some of the key features I want to include in this album are:
The involvement of Spanish artists
Spanish composers and performers will work together to offer new sounds and dimensions to the marimba with the aim of widening the repertoire of the instrument.
It will be a great pleasure to count on:
---- The effort and experience of two renowned Spanish composers: Dori Díaz Jerez and Mario Carro.
---- The exquisite participation of my colleagues, both in life and in work, Paco Díaz and Carlos Castañeda, who are great professionals and lovers of culture and music.
---- The addition of a very special piece for marimba and vibraphone duo by the Canarian musician and composer Enrique Guimerá. This composition still hasn’t been recorded in its original version.
Exciting original creations
As suggested in the subtitle of the album, New Music For Marimba, we strive to offer new creations to contribute to the development of the instrument worldwide. As well as national composers, I am lucky to have the participation of Guillo Espel (Argentina), who has kindly offered to compose Descanso en el bosque (Rest in the forest) especially for this project.
So… Let’s get to work! We have 40 days to fulfil this dream!
