Iván González with BENTOCATS
Conduction is a method to collectively improvise invented by the American Lawrence D. Butch Morris (1947-2013). The method consists of a series of signs and signals that the director gives to the members of the orchestra so that they react by creating a music according to the wishes of the director. Since musicians are free to interpret the signals, the result is always open to the inspiration of the moment. So, who leads the ensemble must also be open and receptive to what the musicians propose. In this way there is a completely unpredictable creative dialogue between the musicians and the director.
Els Bentocats is a symphonic band from the Municipal School of Music of Sant Andreu. It is made up of students from the fourth cycle that are between 11 and 18 years old. Currently it has 70 students distributed in different sections: flutes, oboes, clarinets, saxophones, trumpets, horns, trombones, bombardines, tuba, bass / bass and percussion. The Bentocats were born about 15 years ago with the implementation of the new model of music schools in Barcelona that has been betting since the 2000-01 academic year for music as a whole.
It covers varied repertoires selected cooperatively between the students and their director, Joan Vayreda. With this, it has reduced versions of musicals, soundtracks, medleys of pop, rock, funk, jazz, swing, electronic / pop music, classic, traditional Latin American musicians, composers from Colombia, etc. He participates every year in the TV3 Marathon and together with the symphony orchestra of the music school he participates in an annual exchange from the 2008-09 course: Orléans (twice), Medina del Campo, Alghero, Valencia, Amposta, Mequinenza, Ezcaray, Vitoria-Gasteiz.
