After the inaugurations of the exhibitions between the 13th and the 15th of July, the first two performances took place on Saturday night. The first one – part of the Public Art Circuit – was called Medusa, and it was magical and experimental. Ricardo Jacinto, the author, mixed electronic sounds with a device that he himself developed over the course of three years, and with which he “Explores the body of the cello with several pick-ups”. Blurring the limits between music, sound, architecture and space in a “Hybrid situation between a concert and an installation”, as he defined, Medusa was an unforgettable piece. He played beneath a square, a space that is usually closed to the public, and above him the sounds rippled through hanging metal cylinders. After the performance that night, the installation was still set so local people and visitors alike could experience the enigmatic sounds.
