Flyer

The International Society for Chilean Music (SIMUC) in collaboration with nadaproductions, presents "Proyecto No-Musical III" in Austria. As part of their Europe Tour 2018, the No-Musical ensemble will give two SIMUC-concerts at nadaLokal in Vienna.

The No-Musical project III seeks to reflect on the limits of music and the scenic possibilities that exist in its language. Through musical and extra-musical resources, it shows on stage that sound is just one more element within a complex chain of things that involves: personal experiences, emotional processes, hours of rehearsal, years of study, the understanding of a specific language both spoken and written, as well as social and historical contexts. Proyecto No-Musical III puts music's syntax into tension and proposes a different approach to perception through composition, decomposition and re-composition of the musical material.

Ensemble No-Musical
Stephanie Preller: voice, acting
Pablo Medina: voice, acting
Tomás Gubbins: guitar
Matías Robledo: composition, conduction

The concerts will take place on December 7 & 8, 2018 at 7pm at nadaLokal, Reindorfgasse 8, 1150 Vienna, Austria. Admission is free. Let us meet there!

In this beta version of our catalog of Chilean compositions you will find more than 700 pieces by Chilean composers of different generations. If you are a performer or a concert organizer looking for Chilean repertoire you will be happy to know that you can search our catalog by instrument. It is also possible to search by the piece's title, composer, year of creation or premiere. For each piece you will find further information.

This is the third and largest section of our database, in which we are working on regularly. At this moment the catalog is only available in Spanish and has some minor issues we are aware of and plan to address in the near future. Still, it is a great tool for musicians and musicologists, it is free and internationally accessible on our website. We would be very happy to receive your feedback!

Music Composition In Chile

Tendencies, Conflicts And Perspectives.

Music composition in Chile was during most of the 20th century an academic practice. Most Chilean composers officially considered as such were and have been university professors, and it is common in Chile to define contemporary classical music simply as “academic music”. However, since the return to democracy three decades ago, new scenes and movements have reshaped this panorama: music composition is taught in more places, state funding has supported music composition beyond academia, and new generations have been trying to escape old practices in different ways. An important number of Chilean composers have also studied or work abroad, mainly in Europe. In the year 2016, the election of Vicente Bianchi as the first non-academic composer recipient of the National Prize for Music, created an important crisis about who is or can be a composer, and how music composition has been defined in the last century.

This first SIMUC musicology conference takes this “crisis” of local music composition, and the idea and practice of the composer in Chile and of Chilean music, to discuss the discipline, creators, relations with audiences and the space institutions occupy today in the world of music creation. Some of the questions we want to explore in the conference are: Who has written music in Chile, and why? How has music composition been defined in Chile, and by whom? Who is considered a composer in Chile? What could be considered Chilean in the written music tradition of Chile, and what would be a Chilean music composition? Is there an identity of Chilean music composition? How have these problems changed in time?

We have invited three Chilean musicologists: José Manuel Izquierdo (Chile), Pablo Palacios (Chile/Spain) and Eileen Karmy (Chile/UK), Chilean composer Carlos Zamora (Chile/UK) and Austrian cultural scientist, Tasos Zembylas (Cyprus/Austria). Other three Chilean scholars were selected through our call to present at the conference: Juan Carlos Poveda (Chile), Juvenal Correa-Salas (Chile/USA) and Martín Farías (Chile/UK). A piece by Carlos Zamora, the premiere of a SIMUC-Film about the Chilean music scene and a presentation of SIMUC's database will round the conference.

This conference is possible thanks to ChileGlobal and their financial support.

MEC 1 - Mexican Perspective

MEC 1 - Mexican Perspective

With the aim of creating international ties rooted in artistic content and open reflection, the International Society for Chilean Music (SIMUC) has established an unprecedented cultural link between Chile and Mexico, a bridge of recognition and respect. Although this bridge goes from one end of Latin America to the other, it joins countries with neighboring idiosyncrasies. Ten Mexican authors and researchers will comment, analyze, inquire and express themselves freely from their individual perspective on the works of Chilean electronic music programmed in the first season of MEC. Starting on Wednesday, May 3, 2017, each week a different author will address an episode of the podcast. This SIMUC initiative has been made possible thanks to the collaboration of Chilean composer and researcher Santiago Astaburuaga, who has not only served as curator and link between SIMUC and the Mexican authors, but has also been a key voice in the conceptual development of the project, assuming the editorial task as well. We invite you to take part in the discussion in the comments section below each text.

Take a look at the first article (Spanish) by Mexican artist and researcher Fabián Avila on MEC0103, which includes pieces by Chilean composers Federico Schumacher, Daniel Alvarado and José Miguel Candela, programmed by music educator Joaquín Ibar.
