¡Convocatoria abierta para músicos de la calle! En su innovadora exposición “Partitura”, Carlos Garaicoa imaginó un nuevo tipo de orquesta – una compuesta por 40 grabaciones individuales de músicos callejeros de Madrid y Bilbao, España. Los orígenes culturales, niveles de formación y tradiciones musicales de estos artistas variaban ampliamente. Garaicoa trabajó con el compositor Esteban Puebla para producir una composición a partir de este extraordinario abanico de interpretaciones. Partitura celebra el potencial para la unidad a partir de la diversidad. La exposición celebra con alegría lo visual y lo musical, así como las posibilidades de colaboración entre culturas y géneros. Cada músico trajo los sonidos de su ciudad al museo y, con ellos, aportó un sentido único del lugar.
