Alfonso Pretelt – TOTEM – Colombia
For the caveman the stone was a triumph achieved by necessity. In the same way, stone can be thought of as the first technology, the interface that favors a mutation, a journey, as we have noted, towards the current man. It is known that one of the few ways in which primitive man began to use fire was skillfully scraping two stones. It was the age of man in which music was born.
Alfonso Pretelt is a musician, interdisciplinary artist and psychologist; premiered sound works and video pieces at numerous festivals in Europe and Latin America. Currently concentrates on acoustic research, experimental music composition and audiovisual development.
