Bogotá, Colombia: Recording of Naturae Carmine by Damián Ponce de León
It is already a beautiful thing when a composer writes a full cycle of songs specially for you to perform. But in this case, it gets even more interesting because these songs are meant to be for a SOLO performance where I record live voices, charango, percussion, wine glasses….Damián wrote this music based on poetry by Colombian writers that reflect on the beauty of nature and its possible apocalypses. Recording Naturae Carmina was a beautiful challenge. Can’t wait to share it with you all.
