LUMINA ENSEMBLE presents the saxophone as a medium for avant-garde art, thus causing the interest of different creative agents, producers of stimulating shows for the public. The classical vision of the saxophone quartet is crossed, creating collaborations between different avant-garde scenic, sonics and graphic disciplines. In this way, the public will be placed in a different acoustic-scenic space, which will allow the sensitive experimentation of contemporary art.
LUMINA is the project of four saxophonists who are passionate about their instrument and contemporary music. Its members belong to two generations who join forces to achieve respectful and committed interpretations that respond to their compositional ideal. This difference in age causes the understanding of the musical and artistic fact to appear in a different way, which favours an approach to the repertoire used, full of the energy of those who discover in each note an infinite universe of sound.
LUMINA’s repertoire belongs to the second half of the 20th and 21st centuries, and it is also committing itself to working together with current composers, and to the premiere of works written for the ensemble.

Undoubtedly, the excessive classification -by inertia- establishes the human being in his eagerness to understand his daily reality, pushed towards the marginalization of everything that does not manage to «fit» in our conceptual schemes.
The structuring and order of the stimuli we receive establishes a «placebo» effect that predisposes us to a greater acceptance of the events we experience.
Modern, contemporary, actual, etc., are adjectives that usually arouse suspicion in people and keep them away from an optimal state of acceptance that allows them to discover, in contemporary art, pleasurable sensations in accordance with each past time.
Rania’s Journey is a family activity designed to try to bring contemporary music closer to family audiences, establishing a didactic task that will allow us to form an audience interested in modern art in any of its manifestations.
The shows will explain the reasons why music composed today is called contemporary music. These concerts will have a participative and playful approach, thinking of a young audience that enjoys music and a sensitive experimentation at all levels.
The main objective is to normalise the listening of contemporary music, providing basic notions about which aspects have been modified throughout the history of music until reaching the current compositional moment..
