Musicians in Residence – Mercedes Krapovickas & Jukka-Pekka Lilja

Mercedes Krapovickas and Jukka-Pekka have spent their time at NES working on the project Ecdysis and El circo.  Ecdysis is a series of electroacoustic pieces for live electronics and bandoneon. It is an internal and external search where Mercedes explore beliefs, limits and the possibilities of the unknown.

El circo is a collaborative project between Mercedes and Finnish musician and luthier Jukka-Pekka.  The work is meant to be electroacoustic, combining acoustically played bandoneon music, electroacoustic collages and electronically created pieces, creating the impression of a circus environment in Buenos Aires in the early 1900s. At the same time, the work is a symbolic account of the mixing and diversity of people.
