Arturo En El Barco

Official Link:

Arturo en el Barco is the work of Angélica Negrón a young composer from Brooklyn, NY via San Juan, Puerto Rico. She writes lo-fi ambient compositions that are mostly crafted live through her ensemble which includes strings, toys, accordion, found sounds, music boxes and voices. Drawing inspiration from old family pictures, floating soap bubbles, random noises, marine creatures and puppets made by her friends, she is interested in creating a personal microcosm of recollections through sound.

The group has performed in venues such as Monkeytown (NYC), Le Poisson Rouge (NYC), Glaz’art (Paris, France), The Tank (NYC), Galapagos Art Space (NYC), and in the National Museum of Mexican Arts (Chicago) as part of the Latin American Electronic Music Festival. Releases include albums on Observatory Online (Austria) and Carte Postale Records (Belgium) and also various compilations from labels such as Aerotone (Germany), Tri-Postal (Belgium). At-At Records (México) and Si No Puedo Bailar (Brazil). Originally a solo endeavor, the project has recently evolved into a chamber ensemble for live presentations with performers Andie Springer (violin), Insia Malik (violin), Beth Meyers (viola & banjo), Evelyn Farny (cello), Matt Marks (french horn) and José Olivares (laptop).

Through combining these instruments with electronics mostly crafted through multiple layers of organic sounds, the project intends to evoke in the listener a sense of quiet adventures that happen when you travel to an imaginary past full of distant memories that are indistinct because they probably never actually happened.
