Her work intersperses noise and melody, playing with listeners’ perception of rhythmic structures and seeking to transform the space between sound and audience.
Hugo Esquinca is a Berlin-based sound researcher from Mexico. He investigates the diverse spatio-temporal relations deriving from transductive interactions between technology and the sonorous, expanding within and beyond audibility.
Exploring the threshold of human perception and the physicality of listening, Mario de Vega´s work digs into the materiality of sound, the vulnerability of systems, materials and individuals, and the aesthetic potential of unstable arrangements.
For Lvis Mejía, art and music have the capacity to transcend their own mediums while being deeply intwined in a sense of place and community. More related to a cultural vehicle or actor, his oeuvre takes on multiple forms and expressions. At it’s core, Mejíaʼs work focus on the recurrent Why behind the mediums, a discourse triggered by the most essential contiguity where thoughts, emotions and aesthetics converge and blossom.
