María Luisa Quintas honors the legacy of mining communities in 'Pagus Sonorus'.

Sunday, December 10, 2023

Pagus Sonorus addresses the disuse of coal in Spain, highlighting its historical and cultural importance. It goes beyond economic considerations, highlighting the complex relationship between coal and the identity of communities. Despite the nostalgia, it highlights a living identity that seeks to overcome disappearance through transformation towards recovery and prosperity. The project proposes to use these sites in transition to a sustainable and responsible chain, protecting heritage, culture and the environment.

The connection between the soundscape of nature and music is highlighted, with the project "Pagus" as a bridge between culture and the social reality of the territory. The author shares her personal experience, growing up in an environment linked to the land and music, and proposes a concert to bring music, piano and nature closer to the public. The historical relationship between music and nature is highlighted, citing examples of composers such as Beethoven, Chopin and Debussy.

The performance of María Luisa Quintas is part of the Dinamiz-ARTj program promoted by the Institute for Just Transition (ITJ) and the City of Energy Foundation (CIUDEN) to boost cultural activity in municipalities affected by the closure of mining and thermal and nuclear power plants and to promote the careers of young artists living in these territories.
