Contrast/Movement – Discordian Community Ensemble



The latest release from the Discordian Community Ensemble!

Works by:

El Pricto, Francesc Llompart, Pablo Carrascosa, Owen Kilfeather and Agustí Martínez


This is the fifth album of Discordian Community Ensemble, and also one of its most ambitious productions, involving 5 different compositions that intertwine free improvisation with composition (as usual with this ensemble). Each composition has been designed and conducted by a different composer, some are multimovement works, and all of them make use of different writing techniques in an attempt to arrive at a convincing mix of the undetermined with the determined.
The performers on this recording are also notable for their experience and versatility in the field of free improvisation, some coming from contemporary music, others from free jazz and avant rock.
Mixing different generations of the most active avantgarde musicians from Barcelona, this recording is an interesting view of some of the directions local underground new music is taking at this moment.

In/Escrit at Oso Estudio


Here is an extract from Duet Claudàtor‘s In/Escrit at Oso Estudio (Barcelona) on 30/01/2016 .

In this video, we perform an improvised movement which transitions from the 4th movement of Ravel’s Sonata to Hosokawa’s Duo for Violin and Cello.

We’ve left a tiny bit of the written movements to give you an idea of what we were transitioning between.
