Pampas - Live at the Broad Stage 04/29/12

Documentation from the Live performance of Pampas at The Broad Stage, Santa Monica on April 29th, 2012.

This animation was created to accompany the live GRAMMY award winning performance of "Pampas" by Antonio Lysy at The Broad Stage, Santa Monica. The musical score was composed by Lalo Schifrin, who explained that "In this composition, I tried to convey the vastness of the plains between the South of the Buenos Aires province and the Patagonia which is called the Pampa. The distant horizon puts into perspective the solitude without shadows "

The challenge in this work was to create a motion piece that was intimately connected to the live performance without over powering the auditory experience for the audience. As a consequence, I took Lalo Schifrin's comments as a departing point and built the whole animation around the idea of a distant horizon, through which I tried to convey what it may feel like to be isolated in a land without shadows.

Te Amo, Argentina /   TE AMO, ARGENTINA (music, dance, and multimedia)

Having recently toured throughout North
America coast to coast, TE AMO, ARGENTINA
("I love you, Argentina") is headlined by
Latin Grammy-winning cellist Antonio Lysy,
as well as sizzling international stars of tango
dance Miriam Larici and Leonoardo
Barriounevo (of FOX's So You Think You
Can Dance, and NBC's Superstars of Dance).
In its Eastern Seaboard tour, it will feature,
the acclaimed Borromeo String Quartet
(celebrating their distinguished 20th anniversary season).

TE AMO, ARGENTINA is an exotic audio-visual journey that draws audiences into the heart of Argentina and its fascinating, diverse culture.

The richness of Te Amo, Argentina comes from a seamless unification of Argentine chamber music, heart-stopping original tango choreography, and commissioned projected animations and visual artwork. Using Antonio Lysy's autobiographical experiences as the backbone for the show's story arc, Te Amo, Argentina sends audiences through the different terrains and landscapes of Argentina. From the Amerindian rhythms of the Andes Mountains, to the city-street cafés of Buenos Aires, the combination of music, dance and projected media weave together an inspiring homage to Argentina.


After winning a Latin Grammy in 2010 for an original Lalo Schifrin piece called “Pampas” (which explores the musical landscape of the Pampas region), Antonio Lysy was inspired to produce a performance that would combine chamber music, balletic tango dance, and scenic animations (see info on the Latin Grammy in 2010).

The show’s tango dancers, Miriam Larici and Leonardo Barrionievo, are two of the most beloved and talented tango dancers world-wide. They have performed nationally, internationally, toured with Forever Tango, and appear frequently on popular television shows such as NBC’s Superstars of Dance and Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance, ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, and the hit Broadway show Forever Tango.

The celebrated Borromeo Street Quartet performs worldwide and has collaborated with many of the great composers and performers of our time. They have worked extensively with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and the Library of Congress and are the longtime ensemble-in-residence at the New England Conservatory. The Borromeo are known for their innovative use of technology to enable each musician to perform from full scores and composer manuscripts, a revealing and transformative experience never before possible.

This performance will appeal to a broad constituency of passionate music and dance lovers, an audience will be shouting "Te Amo, Argentina!" by curtain call.

Te Amo Argentina At Sunset Center

"some fascinating music, some beautiful dancing...featuring an outstanding group of highly professional musicians called the Capitol Ensemble, and cellist Antonio Lysy, pianist Bryan Pezzone and double bassist Pablo Motta, was absolutely top drawer. Cellist Lysy is an amazing cellist who is obviously comfortable in any style of music that can possibly be played on the cello. He played with remarkable abandon and projected an exciting aura in everything he played.The fabulous dancers, Miriam Larici and Leonardo Barrionuevo, appeared on stage dressed to evoke various tango styles — from the flashy clothes of sleazy brothel dancers to the splendidly brilliant white ice cream suit and pseudo white tutu of their final dance. It was magical the way these two dancers responded to the music and combined jazz and tango dancing with classical ballet movements. It was spectacular!"
