Primordial Pre-Colombian Ethnic Sounds Mixed with Contemporary Music and Live Electronics.
WaterFire is pleased to present Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra’s resident conductor, Francisco Noya, and his brother Miguel Noya, who be playing together for the first time in Providence to present a program of original music with themes deeply connected to the sounds of WaterFire Providence. Check out their music at the RISD flagpoles on the Providence River Greenway where they will present an evening of Ritual Electronic Music where High Technology and Shamanistic Traditions meet Ancient and Sacred sounds.
This evening is part of WaterFire’s on-going exploration of new approaches to creative placemaking through art, design and innovation. This larger creative placemaking program is made possible in part by the support of ArtPlace.

MIGUEL NOYA has been filling the electromagnetic spectrum with electronic and digitally processed sound waves for more than 30 years. Right after finishing up his studies at Berklee College Of Music and MIT (1978-1981) he returned to his native country where he managed to mix ethnic sources with modern nonconventional music to create his art. Beyond his records and live performances in many different countries, Miguel has collaborated with great minds in the Dance, Theatre, Visual Arts and Academic worlds. His plans, projects and music designs had been shown on a planetary scale, including large audiovisual installations at the World Fairs in Lisbon 1998, Aichi 2005 and at the Venice Biennale 1990.
