Byre World: Writing Noises Ramón Gómez de la Serna and Arseny Avraamov´s Symphony of Sirens - Free

European artists in the 1920s are 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 to 1963) celebrated it.

Dr Fernandez will reinterpret Avraamov's collage of sounds with the words of the writer. The active participation of the audience is required.

NB. Some of the sounds included in this performance allude to acts of war.
