Perceptions of Time

Inspired by one of the most important aspects of music - rhythm - this performance will experiment with different perceptions of time and "time-feel." Time is a concept, and it is how we perceive it that makes it what it is. From strict pulses to none at at all, these different perceptions of time in music will be performed through standard songs, original music, and improvisations.

Alejandro Abaroa
Director of A&R at Warner Music Mexico for the past 12 years, singer and producer Alejandro Abaroa has been working in show business and the music business since he was young. In addition to the numerous albums he has produced, he has been nominated five times for a Latin Grammy and has sold more than five million records.

Being a musical producer for 12 years at one of the biggest mass media production companies in Latin America, Televisa, gave him the knowledge, skills, and experience to understand how to fully take advantage of the power that music can have when paired with a mass media force.
