Black Glass - Featuring Etznab at Lilypad
Black Glass is an interdisciplinary event featuring visual artist Fotini Christophillis and musical acts Etznab and Why Another. In Black Glass the goal is to explore how sound can create movement which can be interpreted in a visual aspect. This leads to a captivating performance in which Fotini translates the soundscapes created by the bands into her canvas which in turn influences the musicians and what they are creating at the moment. This generates a compelling and hypnotizing space for the audience since not only can they hear the music but perceive it visually as well.
Etznab is a duo guitar project co-led by Julian Picado from San Jose, Costa Rica and Iñigo Mantecón from Merida, Yucatán. Etznab stands for mirror in Mayan which the duo felt was an appropriate way to describe themselves since not only do they create a mirror image on stage but they are constantly mirroring each other in the music, not only in their sounds but constantly exchanging roles and ideas. The duo draws their influences from artists like Donny McCaslin, Radiohead and David Bowie.
