SINESTESIA

KER KER
Iker Martín, Eric Lenormand.

With the show Sinestesia, Ker Ker – the saxophonist duo formed by Iker Martín and Eric Lenormand – proposes an resonance ambient of their musical universe with the set designer and visual artist Edorta Subijana.
In Sinestesia, the stage space becomes a field of play and dialogue. The different musical works interact with the projected images in a flexible structure consisting of several screens, which allows the modulation of scenography and projection, making it possible to adapt to different scenic spaces.

Works
The repertoire of the selected works includes contemporary music written between 1994 and the present, with a debut work. Very different compositional languages, for which visual pieces have been created that in turn interact with live sound in various ways.
