I was delighted to receive this news: two of my works (You Should Be Dancing and Together) have been selected and will be presented at In-Sonora in Madrid (March 2016) -- probably the most important sound art festival in Spain nowadays. I was also glad that I found out that my mexican friend Ana Paula Santana is among selected artists as well. See you there!
I'll be presenting the performance You Should Be Dancing, this time with a very talented brazilian dancer named Fabiano Nunes, at Ocupação Arte Sonora, in Rio de Janeiro. This event, promoted by the good friends and sound artists Franz Manata and Saulo Laudares, has been hosting lots of interesting works, performances and loose residencies at Castelinho do Flamengo, including Vivian Caccuri, Leandra Lambert, Savio de Queiroz, J-P Caron and many others. This is the first time this piece is presented outside of Barcelona!
Just happened to know that my video Quando was select as one of the works in Mostra Bienal Caixa de Novos Artistas. It will be touring six cities (Brasília, Curitiba, Fortaleza, Recife, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador and São Paulo) across Brazil for the next two years. Whoohoo!
That's pretty old news, but only now I stumbled upon this critique of Sound Art by curator Sonia Fernandez Pan addressing a group exhibit I participated on. You Should Be Dancing is one of the works mentioned.
I'm really happy that my video 1354 prepared DC motors with steel wool on axis tip, cardboard boxes will be part of the sound art section of the Mixtur Festival, in Fabra i Coats in Barcelona. The festival starts on April 24th, and will include other works by fellow artists and composers, as well as an exhibition about Karlheinz Stockhausen.
The collective show Perder El Norte, which included a performance I did, received a review on the contemporary art magazine Interartive. Check it out!
On march 19th and 20th I'll be presenting an installation on this year's edition of Cau d'Orella, a festival about experimental and electronic music in Barcelona. In the sound art section you'll find works and performances by some fine artists including Lina Bautista, Mauricio Iregui, Laura Llaneli and Cristina Chávez.
February 15th, in Barcelona. I'll present Patética there, along with fine works by Pep Vidal, Angie Bonino, Teresa Lenzi and others.
Next friday, december 20th, I'll be joining fellow sound artists Laura Llaneli and LinaLab and present my piece You Should Be Dancing, with the dancer Javier Vaquero Ollero, as a part of the ArtsSònica program, in Arts Santa Mònica in Barcelona. I hope to see you there!
December 1st I'll present some interactive stuff that relates to an ongoing investigation about loops and postproduction of music at Algorave Barcelona. I'm not that much into live coding becase 1) I suck at coding, 2) Max/MSP sucks as a live coding platform and is the only thing I know a bit and 3) I have some issues with the idea of me doing live coding that I don't want to address right now. But Algorave is not only live coding, so please come by and enjoy a nice glitchy concert! There will be a couple of high profile live coders there.
