A Solo ENG
Marina Pacheco started this project in 2016 as a consequence of the work she has been developing since 2012 with Miso Music Portugal - an institution which promotes events and concerts totally dedicated to contemporary music - invited by composer Miguel Azguime.
During four years, through different concerts where she sang this specific repertoire, she learned a lot about all issues related with the specificities of contemporary works, composer's writing and demanding interpretation.
In 20126, Marina was invited by composer Eduardo Luís Patriarca to perform at Festival Encontros Nova Música in Vila do Conde. Once this cycle of concerts involved only new music, she decided to present herself alone and perform only with video and/ or electronics or to sing a capela pieces.
Carlos Moreno is responsible for the cover and promotion image and Krystallenia Photography for the pictures projected during the performance.
