Brass Microworlds premiered “Beirut”

Why “Beirut”? Because “it’s one of the first covers we did with the Micromundos, it’s a song that from the first time I heard it I got goosebumps and I thought it had to be able to go through my body. It is a song by a Lebanese trumpeter who lives in Paris named Ibrahim Maalouf, who fuses oriental sounds with Groove and jazz, and who is in perfect harmony with the search for Microworlds.”

Since June 2022, Martín Testoni Almirón has been touring the European continent bringing the magic of LOS MICROMUNDOS DE BRASS to cities such as Madrid, Paris, Lyon, Berlin, Prague, Brussels, Lisbon and Porto.

Brass Microworlds premiered “Beirut”


The Universe of Brass Microworlds

Los Micromundos de Brass is a musical stage show created by Martin Testoni Almirón, where various disciplines such as music are put into play, clown, scenic and visual art, to present the fantastic worlds of this scenic time traveler. It develops an aesthetic of the spectacular and fictitious, betting on technological innovations (lighting, architectural, visual and musical), for the realization of presentations in different formats (live and virtual).

Brass’s Microworlds represent a careful space for non-control. A space for expression and reflection. Of freedom. A space of your own. like home. The microworlds are many, each song is a microworld. The shows are conceived as microworlds. And so, we can think of it as cells that make up larger tissues.

The project is made up of Martín Testoni Almirón/Brass as composer and general producer, along with Matías Lemos (keys) and Marcos Demartini (Drums), who merge their knowledge from classical academics, through Latin jazz improvisation, to reaching popular music languages.

In aesthetics and technique are Maia Esquivel (general director) and “Tuna” Galiano Zurbriggen (sound engineer), responsible for providing a look from classical theater to contemporary techniques of performative presentations.

On Thursday, November 10, he premiered his first official video clip belonging to the song “Beirut” (original composition by the French-Lebanese trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf), shot in October of this year in different locations in Lisbon under the direction of the Brazilian director Duda from Somtopia.
