Encuesta sobre el Fondo de la Música

Encuesta SIMUC

El Fondo de la Música se ha transformado en un protagonista de la escena musical (docta) chilena, y su influencia en el desarrollo musical del país es digna de reflexión. Año a año se decide en las oficinas del ministerio gran parte de lo que se hace y no se hace en el ámbito musical del país. Entre colegas músicos, hemos escuchado más de una vez las críticas e ideas que circulan en torno al concurso. Con esta encuesta queremos recopilar y ordenar esta información para entenderla. Queremos develar las principales carencias y aquellos aspectos que se pueden mejorar. En base a datos estadísticos, podremos descubrir las prioridades de la comunidad de músicos chilenos en torno al concurso. Para la SIMUC es importante hacer lo que esté en nuestras manos para mejorar la situación de la música docta en Chile. Por esto, enviaremos al ministerio un reporte con los resultados de esta encuesta, con el objetivo de generar un cambio positivo en la política cultural nacional que vaya en beneficio de todos los músicos y, por consiguiente, de la vida cultural chilena. Gracias por participar.

Proyecto No-Musical III in Vienna

1. Friday, December 7, 2018 - 19:00. nadaLokal, Reindorfgasse 8, 1150 Vienna, Austria Country

2. Saturday, December 8, 2018 - 19:00. nadaLokal, Reindorfgasse 8, 1150 Vienna, Austria Country

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, conducting

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!
