L’origen dels festivals de música potser s’hauria de buscar al segle VI aC a l’antiga Grècia, amb els Jocs Pítics de Delfos, que, entre altres activitats, duien a terme concursos musicals (mousikos agon).

Zeidun: 15 years hiding talent

Jordi Garrigos - GentNormal

For years we have accepted it with total normality, as if it were intrinsic to them, but it is not, nor is it habitual, or common, or anything remotely like that. Perhaps because we had never paused to analyse it. It was so evident that we were looking at extremely talented people...

The industrial/new wave scene in Barcelona in perspective

Jordi Serrano - Domestica Records

The Spanish transition represented a very important sea-change for the state’s political and social structure. Among other transformations, a new democratic system was established, which brought with it an unashamed opening-up towards a new way of understanding and making culture.

BCNmp7. Analog Music

Concert with Zombie Zombie, Akron and Diego Garcia.

This session uses the experience of live music to look at vital styles and genres in the evolution of avant-garde music, such as early electronic music, psychedelic music, Krautrock, noise and cosmic music. It sets out to show that there are artistes who remain faithful to analog means of production, rather than using plug-ins.

BCNmp7. The progressive rock of the 70s in the Peninsula

Our history is full of musical phenomena that have not received sufficient coverage. One particular event that represented a huge breach was the emergence of progressive rock in the late 60s and early 70s in Barcelona, setting itself up as the vanguard of a new way of making music based on rock, psychedelia and the hippie movement.

BCNmp7. The Perfidy of Your Love

We are all children or grandchildren of a first dance. Starting from this premise, the MP7 session ‘The Perfidy of Your Love’ sets out to recapture and champion Barcelona’s dance-band tradition, bringing to light a history of music, dance-halls and the people who attended those first dances, and adapt it to our present-day context, with songs we all know and now have the chance to dance to again.
