Oscar Escudero's Big data


"Big Data", of Custom #3, by Óscar Escudero (1992)

“Big data” forms part of the cycle Custom #3, a series of pieces by Óscar Escudero in which the performers’ customisation plays an important role. Violoncello, piano, electroacoustics and video are combined with unique precision in a piece that invites us to reflect on Walter Benjamin’s concept of “aura”, questioning the originality and uniqueness of a work of art, as well as the demise of this concept when it is mechanically reproduced.
