[IAP]~
Instalación Auricular Polifónica

[IAP]~ is yet another sound-art piece, this one integrates an eight channel spatialization within a cocoon-like structure that wraps around the upper half of the body, submerging the listener in a personalized sound black hole.

.namklaw / M.M.W.D.V. / Prototype

.namklaw is a sound-couture project in which the concept of the portable player, composition, sound spatialization and couture merged to give way to a mobile installation.

The piece’s argument is backed by more than 30 years of work in the fields of composition, sound experimentation, improvisation and design and the fact that the appearance of the walkman and the cassette tape at the end of the 70’s changed the way I related to music reproduction.

This is the prototype model that was made at an early stage, the actual full installation of 10 devices is in the works at present time and will be exhibited towards the second half of 2011. check the .news section for more info.

_SOUNDRROLLS

_soundrrolls is an installation that seeks to rework the idea of the music box and the piano roll, transporting them into a contemporary context, where, through a musical discourse we can hilight the poetics of the mechanical process.

The piece consists of the spatialisation of six mechanical instruments, which generate a harmonic couterpoint controled by human intervention. Each machine play a part of the composition through different procesess which will include proximity, movement, stomp and light sensors, friction and percussion mechanisms, all controlled by patches and interfaces, then amplified to generate the sound of the piece.

WINDSTROMENT / INSTALLATION: RUTA DE LA AMISTAD

This project was commissioned by the Fundación Ruta de la Amistadand consists of an installation in one of the 23 sculptures from the rute. The sculpture we choose to work with is TORRE DE LOS VIENTOS (Uruguay). Windstroment is a sound art piece that seeks to transform the sculpture into a wind instrument, taking advantage of the cross-current winds that blow through the place. A giant lid with three mouth pieces will generate the sounds when hit by the wind, the reverberation inside the tower serves as an acoustic chamber for the composition.
