Flutist Margaret Lancaster will be playing (“Happy Days” - after Beckett), for flute and electronics. Gregor Kitizis virtuosi violin player will play “Gestures.” Musicians in Kampela’s new music band for the show are: Jose Moura (bass), Dan Barrett (cello); Denise Puricelli (keys) and Javier Diaz (percussion).

Kampela’s music navigates between hybridism and complexity. Traditional forms such as “Bossas-Novas” and “Sambas” (popular music forms of his native country, Brazil), receive similar compositional treatment as his more strictly “avant-garde” oriented material.The pieces can be seen/heard as an extension of his approach to music in general and composition in particular. He sees himself inserted in a cosmopolitan / globablized world, “frictioning” against innumerous tendencies and musical styles.
