In 2010 I was invited by Miranda and Mirón to “Reformance”, an Art festival consisting on what they called “recycled” performance. We had to chose a performance from an artist we wanted and create another performance with an idea derived from that selected inspiration. I proposed a version of «Conversaciones telefónicas» (Telephone Conversations) from the spanish artist Isidoro Valcárcel Medina. In 1973, the artist called random phone numbers by phone and offered whoever answered his new phone number without any practical reason.
Referring to music halls (popular shows at the beginning of 20th century consisting of music, comedy and dancing), in Music Call, I called numbers chosen at random and I offered a song that I improvised live, both for the listener as well as for an audience invited to the place to see the performance live.
Music Call proposes a reflexion about nowadays musical industry and the new ways of creating and sharing music, as well as offering it free, in contrast to the usual advertisements done by telephone. It breaks the expectation that we all have when somebody unknown call at our homes, usually for selling some products. Instead I was using that same space, but for offering some free music without asking for anything in return.
