In a rocket, flying around the unknown universe travels George, a first-generation robot, created to overcome all kinds of vicissitudes and able to investigate independently.
In his journey he faces different challenges and live adventures that help him to overcome his fears. Discovering that the problems always seem to be bigger than they really are when you face them. On several occasions he will save his colleagues, second-generation robots more awkward than him, starting at the first of the eleven short episodes, entitled interstellar sound, with music by Jorge Fernández Guerra. In the second episode, original sounds, (Maria de Alvear) he will visit some scared cavemen and then in liquid murmur, with music written by Austrian Klaus Lang, Jorge lands on a water planet and discovers that the salted water corrodes the paint. Solved this problem, he continues its travel in song of buzz (Eduardo Polonio), were he finds giant flowers and stuffed dangerous bees. Then in hyperspace sound (Jo Kondo), he will be caught in a wormhole. In vegetable crunch (Antoine Beuger) he delves into a forest of rare beauty where some vines have trapped his colleagues. Just before sustained sound (Ernstalbrecht Stiebler), where Jorge enters a diamond cave guarded by a dragon. In sigh leeward (Tom Johnson) he attempts to survive in inhospitable places, battered by constant tornadoes and earthquakes. In murmur dreamer (Linda Catlin Smith) hi will find a planet filled with games where his colleagues wait for him making music, later he reaches an icy planet, sound of the frozen garden, where he fights though the adversity with the sound of the music of Walter Zimmermann. Finally in suborbital whisper, the score Michel Angel Tolosa accompanies his way out into the interstellar space to fix the engine of your rocket.
“Georges Odyssey” is a production of contemporary art that combines the work of a visual artist, Ana de Alvear, with the music creation of eleven composers from seven different countries, whose aim is to introduce children and adults to contemporary creation.
This proposal solves the question of how to do a concert with several composers and a single visual work without the video being a generic “screensaver”, and therefore valid for any occasion or that, on the contrary, many different videos create a “salad of movies” different for each composition without any unity making the concert become an audio track to the images.
The Trio Arbós, National Music Prize in 2013, is responsible for giving life to this educational project whose centre is the spectator himself, and the moving story intended to amaze with its suggestive images and nothing usual sounds.
