Hilda Paredes features on new 'e-piano' album

Hilda Paredes' work 'Páramo de voces' features on a new album from Spanish pianist Alberto Rosado. The album, 'e-piano', is a project of piano, electronics and video, showcasing works by Hispano American composers. As the project is audio-visual, the album contains both CD and DVD.

The album was recorded at the Teatro Liceo in Salamanca in 2015 and has been released recently. Full details can be found here.

Parades' work, 'Paramo de voces,' was first conceived as a piano and electronics piece in 2006 and was inspired by the stories of Mexican, Juan Rulfo. It was commissioned by Ian Pace with funds provided by the RVW Trust.

The video was created later at the request of Alberto Rosado, adding the visual element to the work. The visuals were created by Bernardo Arcos and contain interviews and images of the multi award winner Graciela Iturbide.

A video trailer for the album project can be found on YouTube here.
