    Concierto de Bajo Eléctrico desde Casa

As part of my ongoing exploration as performer, I am playing a concert consisting of works by other composers. This one will include graphic, text, and improvisation-based scores to be interpreted on the electric bass.

This is the first of a possible series of concerts, in which I seek to promote works by artists from around the world.
The program for this edition includes composers from Iran, South Korea, United States, and my fellow mexican Wilfrido Terrazas.

As most of us are still remaining at home for the time being, the performance will be broadcast on streaming platform Twitch.
