Clear Insight Productions has collaborated on a number of concerts and musical events around the world.
Cristal Argento I (2011)
Compelling Rhythms and Vital Sounds" - Cristal Argento I is a strong piece of new music for orchestra and live electronics from Argentina's Oscar Edelstein which the sinfonietta premiered. Rhythmical - multilayered sound fields develop like waves. Edelstein's close woven music, continuing the tradition of Edgard Varèse, has a force which gets under the skin with great vitality.

We wanted to make a concert of modern Latin American music with a proper dramaturgy. I had the idea to commission a new work by an avant-garde composer Oscar Edelstein as a way to go from a more popular first part of the concert, to a more serious second half, or from the brilliant surface to the deeper meaning.
— Thomas Nidecker, Basel Sinfonietta
A work for orchestra and electronic processes by composer Oscar Edelstein for Basel Sinfonietta commissioned a new work by Argentinean avant-garde composer, Oscar Edelstein in 2010. The work premiered in Basel on the 24th January 2011 at the Stadtcasino, Basel, and then at the Franziskaner Konzerthaus, Villingen-Schwenningen (Germany) on the 15th February 2011.
The premiere was conducted by José Luis Gomez - who had just then won first prize in the International Conductor's Competition of Sir Georg Solti at the Alte Oper in Frankfurt, and went gone on to be in 2016 the new Musical Director of the Tucson Symphony Orchestra.
Alongside the traditional orchestration, Edelstein added an electronic process the software programme for which was designed by the research team of Edelstein, LAPSO (Laboratory of Acoustics and Sound Perception), led by physicist Manuel Eguia, with mechanical engineer, Ignacio Spiousas at Universidad de Quilmes (Argentina) in the research programme of Edelstein "Teatro Acústico" (Acoustic Theatre).
Clear Insight Productions were part of the production team and the result was two very successful concerts that were sold out.
The electronic part takes the game of the orchestra into another space, another world, another sound universe, like a dream, like a recollection, or how it looks through a kaleidoscope, a prism with various refractions. A powerful percussion mechanism was in action, concentrated beams of sound of stream over the listener. It is exciting to hear such avant-garde new music from Latin America.

DOS IMPRONTUS (2006)

I wanted to play with the idea of synthesis, to generate something that I call composition in the moment. Somehow in this disc I tried to make a synthesis in the place of musical collision with Raul. It was there that micro reasons appeared, fragments, melodies, materials that could be developed on one side or another one. The disc has many great little pearls that could be used for a future adventure....I have not met many in the contemporary language, who can read the space and the musical situation as Barboza reads, that can understand tImbrically as he understands, and that can move back to go forward like he does. That is modernism. Barboza is the new thing.
Oscar Edelstein in interview with Gabriel Plaza, La Nación
"Dos Improntus" is a magical duo between accordion and piano recorded in Buenos Aires in 2006 by emblematic Argentinean musicians Raúl Barboza and Oscar Edelstein.
