Great night of Jam with Jiva, Paul and Ned
PERFECT PERVERTS Jiva, Lluis y Ned
PRENATAL performance in LA CUEVA de ARTEARTESANIA
The Cave of ARTEARTESANIA emerged about 12/13 years ago spontaneously as a meeting place and creativity for the musicians of the Soller Valley from spontaneous jams after the “presentation” of the last group that tried their new songs in small format and for friends.
LA CUEVA has been operating in a self-managed and free way … and as a complementary event to the Openings in Exhibitions
But in recent years it has become a benchmark as a cultural space for many musicians who propose encounters in which to test and confront musical ideas.
It is within the framework of these inaugurations that the “nights of music in the Cave” arise, there were musicians who temporarily rehearsed there and we all understood that presenting live music coinciding with an Art inauguration was something complementary and that as it happened they would feed back ..
This enriching activity of the exchange of musicians who got to play without a score or guaranteed training, ended up being an authentic laboratory of creative musical ideas for dozens of instrumentalists from the town and from many other places that participated in these usually spontaneous jams.
Carlos Tellechea is an Autonomous Balearic Artisan Master, his Company also has the DQA Consideration (Artisan Qualification Companies) that in Soller for example, have this Qualification “Can Matarino” or “Fet a Soller”
He came to Soller 20 years ago and has all those years contributed to Social Security, working as a Craftsman and Gallery owner.
His small business has generated sustainable activity and employment in the Valley, collaborating with local artisans, years working for example with Bernat Forteza or Llucía Magraner (joiers solleriks)
He has represented in National and International Fairs and Exhibitions the name of Mallorca and Soller, where in some cases, such as in the Feria Mercado de Artesanías de Sevilla, he has received awards for the best work.
On Calle de la Luna from the beginning he began to collaborate with other Artisans from Mallorca and Menorca and carried out monographic exhibitions bringing Soller to Exposure to different Mallorcan jewelers … Damiá Mulet, Quico Tent, Tasso Mattar, Pep Joan, Boris Jakov and Menorcans such as Santi Capó or Xavier Monclús, later also relevant in the world of Contemporary Jewelry, such as the teachers of the Massana Ramon Puig Cuyas School, Silvia Walz, Judy Mc Caig, and a long etc.
La Cueva was a “Bonus Track” to his ARTEARTESANIA Project, which was far from being planned.
