The Audiovisual Documentation Collection reviews the trajectory of artists,
who explain their works in the MACBA Collection.

The Quartet de catroc is a piece for two violins, viola and cello that Josep Maria Mestres Quadreny composed in 1962 and which already displays many of the methodological and aesthetic investigations that the composer continued to develop throughout his career. The graphic score contains three movements that musicians should play at different tempos, chosen at random, giving rise to a rich and infinite combination of sound textures. The title of the piece was suggested by Joan Brossa and the graphic score was included by John Cage in the book Notations (1969).
