Brotherhood. Music. Creation. This is the geometric order on which is built the impossible, three-faced, regular polyhedron that is MONODRAMA. This line-up embodies the desire for a project that is more vital and existential than it is casual or professional. Together they are presenting their second album, Anathema, and compositions created during their residency at the Conde Duque Cultural Centre.
Without defending an explicit aesthetic and intellectualised ideology, their own music is a manifesto of a musical creation that endeavours to overcome trite dichotomies: interpreter/music, intellectual/emotional, reflexive/intuitive. An attempt to avoid classifications, to elude the formal organisation of a music that wants to be free, albeit with manifest heterogeneity.
There is no representation in musical monodrama, no fiction; the music of the moment is the moment of the music. The trio makes possible a genuine dialogue in which “all” its parts are fully aware and in control of each and every element of the musical act. Several characters function as a single actor, as a polyphony of the unit.
There are traits of style, humour, a certain ironic distance from what they create but not from the act of creating itself, a certain formal joke in which the game itself is questioned. And with a playful, jovial approach, that lays down ties of affinity between the participants, where the game is what’s serious and what’s serious is the game. A game that progresses toward itself, unhampered by any purpose other than that of inventing its own game board for poetics that need no justification. For you, with you, but not by you, dear audience. Enjoy.
