FILIPE LOPES In focus on the MIC.PT in APRIL
Filipe Lopes is the composer In Focus in April. He is a composer with strong bonds with electroacustic music and new media. He has been an active electroacoustic music composer, composing for a wide range of scenarios such as solo, ensemble or multimedia installation but also collaborating in cinema, theatre, dance and video-installation art.
Filipe Lopes was born in 1981, in Porto. In 2003 he graduated in Music Education at Porto Superior School of Education. In 2007 he completed a degree in Composition at Superior School of Music and Performing Arts (ESMAE), developing strong bonds with electronic music and new media. In 2009 he finished his master's degree at Sonology, in the Hague. He taught electronic music at ESMAE between 2009 and 2011, creating the ensemble 343. He was a curator of the project Digitópia, at Casa da Música, where he was already developing intensive work since 2007. He developed workshops, concerts and software related to music education. In 2012, his work was selected at the Cri.D.A competition organized by Guimarães- European Culture Capital and in 2013 we won the European Prize ECPNM for Live Electronic Music, where he used “Do Desenho e do Som”, a software conceived and built by him.
Filipe Lopes is a composer who believes that "the role of the composer is to be curious, not just be a “maker” of music. An artist and researcher for whom writing is "a form of research, of emancipation and, above all, (...) a way of exercising freedom."

new orchestral Work
by Miguel Azguime
in Lisbon festival
A new work by the composer Miguel Azguime will be premiered in Lisbon, in the festival Music Days in Belém, in Centro Cultural de Belém, April 24. The composer published by the MIC. PT created a new piece entitled Illuminations, that will pe performed by the Orquestra de Câmara Portuguesa, directed by Pedro Carneiro. Besides its particular relationship with poetry (Illuminations is also the title of a famous work by Rimbaud) the work deals with the idea of “iluminating” a certain musical object and casting a new light on previous musical materials. The orchestra is thus conceived as an instrument of timbrical colouration and harmonical lighting. The concerto, entitled "Europe: the new and the ancient", also includes two works by Mozart (opening of The Abduction from the Seraglio and the Violin Concert n.º 5 in A major). Miguel Azguime is a composer, poet and percussionist and one of the founders of the Miso Ensemble, more than 30 years ago. This concert is part of the 10th edition of the Music Days in Belém festival. This year's program is called "Around the world in 80 concerts".

The composer published by the MIC.PT Daniel Schvetz explains that the project is "an imaginary meeting, perhaps utopian, never impossible. Four excerpts of theatre plays and three Shakespeare sonnets, seven fragments of Quixote, were chosen and became 5 small pieces involved in precise musical contexts, objects to be transmitted by radio." On Saturday April 23 will be transmitted all the audio performances together. The performers are Elizabeth Davis, Nicolas McNair, Duncan Fox, Nicolas Robertson, Jaume Pradas and Teresa Albuquerque (narrators), Helena Raposo (lute), Joana Amorim (flute) and Jaume Pradas (percussion).
