Programa Público de Arte Abierto. En esas aguas, en todas las aguas Natalia Pérez Turner - Cello Things We Do for Love, Erick Meyenberg




In those waters, in all waters is an improvisation and live interpretation that cellist Natalia Pérez Turner will perform based on Things We Do for Love. This sound action is a reinterpretation of the work and an opportunity to dialogue again with the already finished piece (after almost a year of having participated in the musical composition for the video installation), in order to revisit it from the cello and be able to react immediately. not only to the images, but to the sensations and atmospheres that they generate together in space.

It is a search to transform the work again, make music part of its plastic content and invite the public to perceive the sound of the cello in an almost visible way, like the images themselves.


For the sound design of Things We Do for Love, Erick Meyenberg decided not to accompany the images with its real sound, but to experiment with the emotional and suggestive abstraction of electronic music, conducted by Roderic, in dialogue with Natalia’s cello performance. Pérez Turner, who contributed a great affective depth to the work and the space.

In this video installation, music is the emotional support that suggests multiple simultaneous readings and the sensation of being in an occupied space from floor to ceiling.
