Susana Santos Silva

The event has taken place

Echelons of jazz, improvised music and vivid sound collages.

Firmly established in the upper echelons of jazz and improvised music, a musician of lyric imagination and technical ferocity with deep historical perspective, Susana Santos Silva has expanded her artistic scope, creating vivid sound collages that meticulously blend field recordings, electronics, and her authoritative trumpet playing that extend her interest in narrative and wordless storytelling. Her new Thanatosis album All The Birds And A Telephone Ringing features the most accomplished and sophisticated iteration of this new practice, starting with her deep interest in the variegated relationships that exist between the natural world and the human beings that inhabit it.

The presentation of this music, a celebration of this release, will be accompanied by the screening of the videos that were created by Silva for each piece.

In the second part of this concert, electroacoustic composer Alexandra Nilsson joins Silva for a release-concert of their new album RADIO TWO on the italian label SuperPang, recorded and composed in residency at EMS.
