Imatge inicial

TROMPA is a project that aims to enrich and democratise the European publicly available musical heritage through a user-centred co-creation setup. As part of this project, the MTG and VoctroLabs are focused on the specific use case of choir singers, creating an application to help choir singers in their individual practice and for the learning of choral music with or without knowledge of Musical language.

In this context we have stablished a collaboration with the vocal quartet Cantoría. This collaboration will allow other participating choirs to have access to the synthesized repertoire of this emerging vocal quartet, and also to perform a concert that will bring together all the participants in spring 2021. Cantoría is currently recording its repertoire in order to generate the synthesis of their voices, to be used in the prototype application for choir singers of the TROMPA project.

Cantoría is an ensemble created in 2016 and is directed by Jorge Losana and its members are Inés Alonso (soprano), Samuel Tapia (countertenor), Jorge Losana (tenor and conductor) and Valentín Miralles (bass). With various international recognitions and awards, their career has taken off with force and they have performed concerts in many countries around Europe: Italy, Germany, France, Poland, United Kingdom, Belgium, Croatia, Lithuania, Spain, etc.
