- DOOR CLOSES AT 9pm. In respect to the musicians we do not open any exceptions. ART & CONCERT DINNER EVENTS are limited to just 40 people.
The so-called "real time composition" is the foundation of this duo, formed by violinist Carlos "Zíngaro" - free jazz and European exploratory music central figure, with Ulrich Mitzlaff, German cellist with multi-dimensional collaborations in various categories. The musicians develop their expression from this initial premise, creating diverse sound spaces that not directly refer to specific languages, won’t be unrelated to the trajectories and influences of each musician. In that sense, it will be predictable in this duo presentation, the existence of an intense and diverse musical interaction. From "free jazz" to many other approaches, through the most random aspects of contemporary music.
Carlos "ZÍNGARO" - violin
In 1967 he formed Plexus, the only Portuguese group at the time to have developed a new musical approach based on contemporary music, improvisation and rock… in 1979 he won a Fulbright Grant and was invited by the Creative Music Foundation in Woodstock, New York to participate in meetings, classes and performances with such composers as Anthony Braxton, Roscoe Mitchell, George Lewis, Leo Smith, Tom Cora and Richard Teitelbaum (a regular collaborator).
He also gave lectures on New Notation Concepts, Movement and Sound, and the inter-relationship of Improvisation and Body Attitude. As a soloist, or with other musicians and composers, Carlos Zíngaro has performed at many of the most important new music and improvising festivals in Europe, Asia and America... A substantial level of Carlos Zingaro's musical activities are associated with theatre, film and dance.
…in 1988 he worked with the Italian theatre director Giorgio Barberio Corsetti on his Kafka Trilogy. He has also been stage and costume designer for several other theatre productions and produced several film scores working extensively with dancers and dance companies such as the Gulbenkian Dance Company, the Opéra de Genève Dance Company, Michala Marcus, Aparte, and Olga Roriz.
His record production, in his own name or in collaborations with other musicians and composers of more than thirty titles, with editions in Portugal, France, Switzerland, Germany, Canada, Italy, UK, Japan, the Netherlands or USA.
He has been awarded the "Chock de La Musique" award twice by the French magazine Monde de la Musique, as well as his work being recognized as the best records of the year in Wire Magazine (UK) and Coda (Canada) ).
-It's too long… and he's enchanting… just DON’T MISS IT!
You have a fabulous opportunity to meet him personally… AND with Mitzlaff, we’ll only be forty people!!!
Ulrich MITZLAFF - Cello
German cellist and composer, Ulrich Mitzlaff is living in Portugal since 1996, working in the area of contemporary and experimental music, free jazz, improvisation and sound-art.
He also collaborates with some of the most innovative Portuguese artists and participates in several multidisciplinary projects.
With Carlos “Zíngaro” he performed in many different constellations and formations that had a significant impact on his playing.
Ten Sonic Miniatures about Edvard Munch´s “the Scream” Ulrich Mitzlaff has published two records on Edvard Munch’s “The Scream”.
After his first solo project “X-RUN-4 PRISMATIQUE”, launched in the format of a digital album at the label Crónica Electrónica in 2016, Ulrich Mitzlaff edits ten sonic miniatures, inspired by the famous painting of Edvard Munch “The Scream”.
All miniatures are created and played in the moment, following the concept of real time composition.
Visual art converted in music by the expressive possibilities of the sonic resources shaped like a dialogue between the music of Ulrich Mitzlaff and the painting of Edvard Munch.
This is a ONE-OF-A-KIND experience ...
How it started... our hidden "museum"
An old stable converted into a house/studio by an artist couple as a jewel/ sculpture.
The artistic adventure started in 1996 creating the architectural solutions.
In almost 3 years enthusiastically the contemporary art collection climbed its walls, took its ceilings, spread all over the floor filling up these 230m² x 5 high and 15 x 2m sculpture garden.
Discover a private loft house/gallery, full of stories and history from the past 20 years.
Dive into over 200 original contemporary art pieces surrounded by books and catalogues.
The full address will be provided after your BOOK IN.
