FRAMES Percussion, a percussion group focused on new music, represents the talent and commitment to music of its time. Formed by a new generation of percussionists from our country, the group was born with the intention of facing the most demanding programs in the current repertoire, with careful preparation and the utmost respect for new compositional languages.
The impact of their presentation in 2014, with the performance of an ambitious American post-minimalist music program, has led the group to carry on incessant activity around this repertoire until the current season. Linked in its beginnings to Joventuts Musicals de Catalunya and ESMuC, the group has participated in the Sampler Series and Escenes series of L'Auditori de Barcelona, OUT.SIDE Cycle, Mixtur Festival, "Young Performers" of the Fundación Juan March and ENSEMS International Festival of Contemporary Music of Valencia among others.
FRAMES Percussion's repertoire includes some of the most iconic works of music for a percussion ensemble as well as collaborations and premieres of works by composers such as Luís Codera Puzo, Nuria Giménez-Comas and Sirah Martínez, Yukiko Watanabe, Cathy van Eck, Ruud Roelofsen and Pablo Carrascosa. The group has also created shows such as 5,100 (m/s) with Joan Català or Out of the [CAGE], a staged concert of an educational nature.
