Mexique, musique d'aujourd'hui

In this concert dedicated to current Mexican creation, Hilda Paredes holds a special seat.

Born in Mexico, Hilda Paredes studied in London while maintaining connections with her homeland, teaching at the University of Mexico and working as a radio producer. Paredes was particularly affected by the oeuvre of the Chilean surrealist poet Vicente Huidobro, founding poet of Creationism movement and friends with Apollinaire, Cocteau, Breton, and Eluard. The foundation of Altazor is a work on language, breathing, and vocal inflections.
