A medical diagnosis serves as the guiding idea behind Cabezón (big head in Spanish), a work by composer Martin Rodriguez and his collaborator Jérémi Roy. An interactive sonic environment doubling as musical performance, Cabezón (2014) explores how we, as individuals and/or as a community, react when confronted with the unexpected, with life-changing experiences that cross our path.
This sonic exploration, consisting of acoustic and electronic sounds, is designed as that place where active choices collide with unpredictable occurrences. Musical compositions performed live – a high-tension emotional charge – add a supplementary layer to the sound installation, while projected images contribute to controlling or distorting our perception of the surrounding space.
