Developed between 2020 and 2021, #queseacabechile is a solo performance for performer, an installation of cooking pots, projections and electronics. Through these various elements, the viewer enters a space that confronts him/her with a static body that varies between an offensive and defensive position.
The performance is based on the Chilean political context that emerged on October 18th, 2019, as a social outburst, which resulted in a series of human rights violations by the police and military. #queseacabechile attempts to represent the notion of collectivity from a single individual, and from the multiplicity of the pots, which derive from an act of protest known in Chile as “cacerolazo.”

#queseacabechile is a hashtag used by people in Chile to condemn different aspects of the social, economic and political situation in Chile. This name was taken as a title, because of the importance that social networks took at that time for the dissemination of police violence.


Tamara Miller (*1992) initiates her composition studies in 2010 at the Universidad de Chile with Jorge Pepi-Alos, Miguel Letelier and Rafael Diaz. She is currently based in Germany where she completed her Master’s degree in composition at the Hochschule für Musik Carl Maria von Weber Dresden in 2020 with Manos Tsangaris, Franz Martin Olbrisch and Mark Andre, and a second Master’s degree in electronic composition in 2023 at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln with Michael Beil.

Tamara’s work has been characterised by a dedication to diverse instrumental conformations, electronic music, and an engagement in collaborative and multi- or interdisciplinary projects.

Her seeking for more collaborative work prospects gave place to the co-fundation of the Dresden group Acantun Kollektiv, and in 2020 to the fundation, with other South American artists, of the interdisciplinary collective LAR∀S, which focuses on Latin American socio-political issues, migration and feminism.
Parallel to the work with these groups and composition commissions, she also tries to develop personal projects that respond to her particular artistic interests, such as the performance #queseacabechile, premiered in 2021 and (Des)—Vítreo // (Un)—Vitrify, premiered in 2023.

Tamara Miller’s compositions have been performed by esteemed ensembles such as Musikfabrik, Ensemble SCOPE, Ensemble Linea, Tempus Konnex, E-MEX Ensemble, Sinfonietta Dresden, Orquesta de Cámara de Valdivia, and the Elbland Philharmonie Sachsen, among others, showcasing her compositions to audiences in different countries around the world.

In addition, Tamara has also participated in renowned festivals. Some of them include the Festival Frau* Musica Nova, MaerzMusik, Musica Festival Strasbourg, IMPULS Festival for New Music Saxony-Anhalt 2019, Festival Musica ON, Festival Tage für Neue Musik Izmir, and the XVIII Festival International de Música Contemporánea.

She received the first prize in the project “Composers in Region – Fantasie Musik” of the Elbland Philharmonie Sachsen, and in “Premio OSSCA” of the Orchestra Sinfonica di Salerno Claudio Abbado.
