Amen Fiesta: Re-asserting our influence in art and music culture.
Music exists in the ear of the listener, not on the page of the score, nor in the world of pure sound effects. It’s Obvious that new kind of music has emerged which is less music but a reflection on the lack of music, or on the impossibility of music in the age in which we live. One can be modern without being avant-garde and by instead thinking in the old musical way, in terms of grammatical sequences that linger in the ears and the memory of the listeners. Amen Fiesta intends to become a symbol of musical modernism. We believe it is not enough for music to be merely contemporary. Amen Fiesta idea is allied to the belief in progress, understood in terms of the life and energy of human communities powered by our tradition. The obsession with the future represents all human events as motivated by the always-advancing logic or a move away from organic settings. Some may ask why should I listen to Music? People see no reason dedicating their time listening to music that only gear toward Dancing not even with meaning. And each claims originality, authenticity, the plain fact of being me as a vindication. Modern works of music tend to be self-consciously, never content to belong to the tradition but always overtly and ostentatiously defying it.
Traditional music is significant part of our civilization and a symbol of its ultimate meaning. Music is the Faustian art par excellence, the defiant assertion of the human voice in a cosmos of unknowable silence. Tones are what we hear in sounds when we hear the sounds as music while Sounds are objects in the physical world. Modern Music produce only sounds no tones. Cultural coup d’état achieved by these group of composers were possible because scholars of traditional music where reactional not responsive. The taste of work of music is how it sounds, not how it is theorized. Amen Fiesta Concert is a place where testimonies to the crucial relation between the work of music and its audience will meet. It seems to me that, if there is to be music of the future it will, belong to the music of the past.
