Cesar Latorre: son of a welder and a housewife, who had piano lessons from his sister from the age of 4 and was terrible at dribbling in basketball, otherwise….

Основната цел на RADAR Festival Beyond Music е да представя музикални проекти, свързани с широк спектър от художествени форми. Кога осъзна ограничеността на твоята художествена форма, или, казано по друг начин – кога радарът ти откри нуждата за мултидисциплинарно изразяване?

The big limitation of the artist is his limited body. For musicians our art helps already to overcome that problem but not completely, just a little. Interacting with other art forms and other artists that feel/move/see in other contagious ways, is crucial to extend your own creativity. Definitely playing for movement/dancers has opened for me the gate to wanting to co-create more and play in ways I never did before. The way they talk about their sensation while dancing is amazing.

Кои три думи описват вдъхновението към проектите ти?

Enhance the beauty.

Каква част от художествената ти отдаденост е неизбежна?

All that I can control, and the one I can not control even more.

Ако можеше да сътвориш проект в друга художествена среда или в друга художествена форма, какъв би бил той?

Modern ballet.

2023 е твоята лична година за…?

Get more calm, get more grounded and try to eat less chocolate. Try. Just try.

Кога музиката e отвъд?

When music plays you, and everything is fine.

Cesar Latorre – La general

Кой е твоят личен радар?

In a social environment I hear/observe everything. Depends where you are, it can be tricky.

Форматът на RADAR Festival Beyond Music взима предвид художествения потенциал на новите технологии и техните допълнителни функции. Какво значение имат технологиите в твоите творби?

New technologies extend the body of the instruments. I like to think that when the piano was created, it brought a vast amount of new music during centuries. That 88 keys were a great new technology – why not to try, maybe some new centuries of great music are ahead of us.

На нашия фестивал често имаме местни проекти, които са спонтанни или зависещи от променливи, което ги прави устойчиви на това да се пресъздават или повтарят по същия начин. В известен смисъл, тези проекти си остават тук и сега. Какви са размишленията ти върху ‘тук и сега’?

Here and now are random. Randomness creates moments and forces you to react in adventurous ways, is like a fourth musician telling you “listen to this”, “now I have a great idea” or “the best is to be quiet now”. Learning to read these messages is our task.

Какво можем да очакваме от теб на 05.08 във Варна?

Visit this I am sure to be a beautiful place and have a hint of the culture, people and history. There is nothing more valuable to an artist than traveling.
