Antonio Amodeo, Classical Guitar
Continuidad y deformaciòn – Works by latin american composers:
Porras, Vitores, Abad, Vignes, Chicayban, Santorsola
In this album we can find various realities transformed in sound and different kinds of writing belonging to the same area, the so-called Sur, kaleidoscopic and impossible to restrict to a single form of poetics. The works performed here are the musical representation of the fusion between the academic style and the richness of the popular element typical of that area.
Flores Abad dedicated the piece "Continuidad y deformación" (2012), which gives the title to Antonio Amodeo and to the guitar. Eduardo Flores Abad (Guayaquil, Ecuador 1961) is a composer artist whose poetics are inspired by the unorientable Möbius strip, whose image is on the CD cover: "The work refers to the topology of the surface of the unorientable Möbius strip. The music is like interwined apparition of two musical currents that return endlessly to the same temporal plain."
