Homenaje a Cervantes

Richard Hoadley

Homenaje a Cervantes is a performance of electronics, music notation, text and graphics, all generated live. It uses text from the original Spanish and from English translations of Cervantes’ iconic work Don Quixote as well as a series of specially commissioned poems by the British poet and writer Phil Terry. Graphics are taken from Picasso’s 1955 sketch of the Spanish literary hero and his sidekick, Sancho Panza.

The piece was commissioned by the TENOR 2017 conference and its composition has been supported in part by funds from Arts Council England.
