FRAMES Percussion, a percussion group focusing on new music, showcases the talent of today and represents a commitment to the music of our time. Formed by a new generation of percussionists from Spain, the group was founded with the aim of engaging with the most demanding programs in the current repertoire, with careful preparation and the utmost respect for new compositional languages.
The impact of their presentation in 2014, with the performance of an ambitious program of post-minimalist American music, has led to the group undertaking incessant activity based on this repertoire, quickly becoming one of the main Spanish percussion ensembles. Known for the originality of their programs, which often go beyond classical percussion, FRAMES has created shows such as Out of the [CAGE], 5.100 (m/s) with Joan Català, and Desert, alongside dancer and choreographer Albert Quesada.
FRAMES Percussion’s repertoire includes some of the most iconic works of music for a percussion ensemble as well as collaborations, commissions and premieres by composers such as Luís Codera Puzo, Núria Giménez-Comas, Sirah Martínez, Yukiko Watanabe, Cathy van Eck, Alberto Bernal, Meriel Price, Ruud Roelofsen, Pablo Carrascosa, Manuel Rodríguez-Valenzuela, Montserrat Lladó and Helena Cánovas.
Since 2020, they have received the support of ICEC (Institut Català de les Empreses Culturals – Generalitat de Catalunya) and, since 2021, that of INAEM (Instituto Nacional de Artes Escénicas y Música – Gobierno de España)..
