AUDIOSPHERE: Sound experimentation 1980-2020
Museo Reina Sofía, Madrid, October 14, 2020 to January 11, 2021
Audiosphere features the work of 810 artists from 80 countries working in the field of experimental music, with a particular focus on the independent, underground, DIY and non-academic spheres, both before and after the popularization of the internet. This exhibition aims to fill a historical and cultural void by supporting and presenting the work of this international community that in most cases has been ignored in the field of contemporary art.
Curator of the exhibition: Francisco López (http://www.franciscolopez.net).
We participate with a sound recording of our work Acuática, version 2.

Laboratorio del Mundo Vibrante, Festival Ensems, Valencia, Spain
Universitat de València, LA NAU, 18-20 September, 2020
This event consisted of two workshops and three mini-concerts. Visitors of all ages could explore the world of vibration and resonance by modifying and controlling three robots/creatures mounted on metal springs that generate surprising movements and rhythms. In the same space we recovered two works from 1993, being the very first version of the Krachtgever, a tower of vibrating boxes supported by springs, and the Trajectversterker, a vibrant wooden track on which various objects sound and move in different ways. We used these three elements of the set-up in three mini-concerts.

Gaudeamus Muziekweek, Utrecht, Netherlands,
Poème Symphonique by György Ligeti, on-line concert, September 13, 2020.
On September 13, 1963, at the closing concert of the Gaudeamus Muziekweek, Hungarian composer György Ligeti’s legendary work Poème Symphonique premiered, having been commissioned by Gaudeamus. A piece for 100 metronomes which are started simultaneously, but in different tempi, resulting in a polyrhythmic jungle.
57 years later Gaudeamus presented Poème Symphonique again, with a corona flavour this time: from living rooms and other locations all over the world, via Zoom.
We were one of the participants, with our inherited metronome.
