ENTRE TEMPS PERDUS (2020-21)
Entre temps perdus is an album and listening experience by musician and multidisciplinary artist Martín Rodríguez. Initiated with exploratory sessions with choreographer/dancer Corinne Crane, the project examines the time stretch of a specific moment, by creating a space between contemplation and movement. These sessions began prior to the pandemic, but gained momentum as the realities of the global health crisis prevailed. From these early experiments, Rodríguez developed an instrument using live radio broadcasts, a modular theremin and a cymbal. Exploring time, movement and resonance, the result is an unveiling of the harmonies and textures hidden between the broadcast and the cymbal. This unconventional instrument creates a music that can be described as ambient electroacoustic. Entre temps perdus also makes use of field recordings made while the artist was observing a new silence in Montreal’s urban spaces during the first days of the pandemic.
