Re-imagining the voice

Crowned by critics as one of the best albums of 2021, Clamor has turned Maria Arnal and Marcel Bagés into one of the key names to understand the present and future of music in Spain. After the seminal 45 cerebros y 1 corazón (2017), already a classic of modern popular music, Clamor is a monumental leap in scale,  through electronic landscapes, sharp strings and polyphonic voices that cross time and space. A counter-pandemic fable that combines the lyrical memory of Rodoreda and Verdaguer with the speculative mythologies of Donna Haraway and Ted Chiang, echoes of Violeta Parra and Björk, that featured Holly Herndon and Kronos Quartet.

Hiperutopia is a cosmic journey through the Clamor universe, created especially for Sónar 2022. A heavy and atmospheric staging of the album in which the songs expand to incorporate a storm of human choirs and geological sounds. A unique opportunity to witness one of today's most ambitious and exciting live performances in an unforgettable, unprecedented format that will feature the 36 voices from the Cor de Noies de l'Orfeó Català.
