Charo Calvo + Railroad Concrète

biegungen im ausland

Charo Calvo is a Spanish electro-acoustic composer, sound designer and teacher, living in Brussels. After having performed as a dancer with the influential Belgian dance company Ultima Vez, she started her studies on electro-acoustic composition in 1992 with Annette Vande Gorne at Brussels Conservatory (now ARTS2 Mons), where she graduated in 1999. From 1992 her work as composer is being developed through different media, widely diffused on international venues and festivals, dance performances, theatre, film and radio. Charo Calvo hasrealized at one point that choreographers are able to travel with sound, to connect to certain temporal events using the physicality of certain sounds, the semantic content of words or field recordings, the energy of a musical phrase, and for the rest, lets allow the visual world and the aural invisible one to coexist without forcing the relationship. She believes in the imagination and in the perception skills of us human, and in the power of sound to trigger mental images. In a concert situation, let’s listen to the sounds dancing.

Formed in 2017, the duo Railroad Concrète consists of Heidrun Schramm and JD Zazie aka Valeria Merlini and is based on actual train sounds that the artists take from their personal archive of field recordings. Fascinated by these sounds that accompany their daily life, the duo plays with train noises, inner resonances, sonic landmarks, signals, social sounds and train station’s acoustic qualities. Railroad Concrète constantly develops their collected sonic materials in its compositions and sound installations, where sound sources move between concreteness and abstraction and are in perfect symbiosis. The project has been presented in Belgium, Germany, Austria and Czech Republic. Railroad Concrète has been part of the Q-O2 art-residency program in 2018 in Brussels.
