I have been interested in all the possibilities that music
and sound can offer to the worlds of Theatre, Video and Cinema.
In Theatre I have extended the use of sound to the stage;
working with the rhythm of the actors; their movements, speech
and spoken choruses as well as percussion with scenic objects,
Music must not merely be a decoration. I speak from a dramatic
point of view, proposing an entirely different phenomenon
called "audiovision" in which the universe of sound
produces a dramatic sense all of its own. Music written along
with the text can irrigate it to the extent that the whole
becomes unified dramatic text.
I've learnt to identify and to extract dramatic functions
from the text (not roles but functions) by following the theoretical
works of Levi-Strauss/Propp/Greimas as applied to a dramaturgy.

del Rey Don Pedro
Written by Agustín
García Calvo and directed by José Luis
Remarks: This was a play placed in the Middle Ages. The director
wanted these songs to sound ancient but not historical;
The text presented me with those difficulties inherent in a meticulously
written work with a highly elaborated metrical style.
The examples offered here are no more than sketches. I didn't
write the music that finally debuted, having left the
after eleven months.
The two song prototypes offered here have been performed by the
actress Karmele Aranburu.
