about

Blue doves
Drink by night the glacial sweat
That​ ​springs ​f​rom Elis' crystalline brow.
- Georg Trakl

Àlex Reviriego ​builds a​ ​solid solo work where, in an excellent manner, he sketches a pendular triangle in whose vertices he rewrites the three main characteristics that define a musician: the music you listen to, the music you play and the technique you work on that defines you as a performer.
And this triangle is coherent and unheard. With the conviction of someone who has found his own language, is capable of generating a compact, incisive and microscopic series of pieces that resemble a poem collection, where words hide and reinvent new meanings that withdraw from conventional logic.

In ​Blaue Tauben there are different levels of coexistence and dialogue between an incisive instrumental technique, an innovative timbric exploration of the double bass and a fragmented discourse, but with a telescopic view, where every movement of the bow acts like a knife: where this knife cuts, it opens a new path that leads us to reevaluate our listening. Àlex Reviriego forces us to see his instrument as a microtonal noise transducer.

Blaue Tauben is a double bass suite in eight fragments forming a unitary block, where the duality “acoustic noise-instrumental timbre” and “interpretation technique-recording technique” has been considered, worked on and matured over an eighteen month gestation period. Crystalline is the final result of this research.
