The #ApertitivosThyssen concerts sponsored by Heineken will be held on the Museum’s rooftop terraces for the fourth year running.
Audiences can enjoy a different concert every Saturday in July: this year the scheduled artists are Aries, Blanco Palamera, Asunción and MOW, whose styles range from pop and soul to R&B and electronic music.
This year’s #Thyssen Aperitifs concerts explore painting as a visual expression of movement, rhythm and musicality. In order to link abstraction and geometry with speed, rhythms, vibration and light, each session is devoted to a twentieth-century avant-garde work from the Museum’s collections.
With the collaboration of:
Asunción x Rózanova. #AperitivosThyssen
Asunción is the name adopted by Julián Villagrán – who is also known as an actor – for his one-man band.
Villagrán has been a member of other bands like Turistas Espaciales and Nikaenen, a DJ, a producer of electronic music and disseminator of 90s rave culture, as well as a promoter at venues such as the Café Berlín.
In Asunción he uses songs to combine pop and rock, taking festive electronic music as a basis. Guitars, synthesisers and loops are the tools used to put together his first album, which was recorded at La Mina studios with producer Raúl Pérez (Pony Bravo, Fiera and Kiko Veneno, among others).
MOW x Chashnik. #AperitivosThyssen
Mow is the artistic name of the Madrid-born Gabriela Casero, who soon became a hit with audiences thanks to the blend of dream pop and electronic music in her first album Woman (2018). Besides this LP, which was a runner-up for the MIN award for best electronic music album, she has released several singles that have made it to the Spotify viral 50 playlists in the US.
Mow was also nominated for the best soundtrack award at La Jolla Film Festival (California) and has performed at festivals such as Sònar and Primavera Sound, among others.
