Day and time
Auditorium of La Pedrera
Activity at La Pedrera:
Mourn & Carla Pérez
High-voltage session with music from the Mourn four-piece and photographs by their guitarist and singer Carla Pérez. Youth and talent with one of the best-known Catalan indie rock groups around the world.
The Catalan four-piece Mourn burst on to the scene in 2014 with their eponymous debut album, an angular slice of indie rock, with direct, sincere lyricism. A confidently delivered album by four teenagers from El Maresme. Two years later, they returned with the magnificent Ha, Ha, He, on which they showed they were worthy of highest praise, quashing any remaining doubts about the band’s musical capabilities.
Facing the kind of obstacles that might quite understandably derail the career of any emerging band, Mourn managed to keep things going and typically found a way to take the anger, frustration and passion of the last two years and turn it into music. Now, having freed themselves from their legal ties, Mourn are back in force to share their third full album: Sorpresa Família.
Guitarist and singer of the group Mourn, photographer of everyday life and enthusiast for the act of painting. Her previous exhibitions were photographic ones: "THEM" (Barcelona, 2015) and "my first jet lag" (Barcelona, 2015), the latter with the cooperation of Polaroid Originals. Her only exhibition of paintings was with her friend, the artist Albert Riera Galceran at Servicio Continuo (Barcelona, 2016). Under the title "ZOO”, they presented a set of abstract works featuring gestures, movement and harmony. With the Barcelona publisher Terranova she published a book of photographs called I Saw Three Different Moons Tonight (Barcelona, 2015) showing the photographs she took on her group’s first American tour. She also self-published a book of all the photos she took in 2016, entitled 2. Carla has worked on publications like Terra Firma, Metal Magazine, Zatro Magazine and with brands like Oballou and The Nude Label. She also created a piece of video art for the Paloma Wool brand – BCN (Barcelona, 2016) – and showed her video diary Walk Then Fall at the Fine Arts Circle in Madrid.
