Cristina Dignart wins the Música Viva 2014 Competition
The jury of the 15th International Competition of Electroacoustic Composition Música Viva 2014, constituted by Elżbieta Sikora, Andre Bartetzki and Miguel Azguime, has awarded the work Cerberus by Cristina Dignart. Born in Cuiabá, this Brazilian composer made her Master's Degree in Composition and New Technologies at the Goiás University. The music of this young composer has already been presented in various Brazilian cities, as well as in Portugal, that is, in the context of the SoundWalk of the Música Viva 2010 Festival at the Belém Arts Centre in Lisbon.
Cerberus has as the conducting line, the exploration of space as expressive element. Its title evokes the Greek mythological dog, possessing various heads in a single body, serving thus as a metaphor of the spatial divisions and the independency of the paths created from a unique body.
In 2015, the programme of the next edition of the Música Viva Festival will thus include a monographic concert dedicated to Cristina Dignart.
