The Harmonic Cicada is a soundscape that shows the transformation of the natural territory in the Coffee Cultural Landscape area (some Risaralda and Quindío municipalities) from the sonorous intervention of the artist when simulating with his voice the sounds produced by the cicadas with their abdomen and wings (insects from the Cicadidae family). The interaction between the answer of the actual cicadas and of the local fauna to the author’s sounds, appoints to the passage of the topographic territory to the symbolic one from the audible language, providing a new interpretation which ascribes inherent characteristics of the animal evolution to the mutual experience.
Mauricio Chica M. / Colombia
The following research-creation will talk about the pollution in rivers, streams and its impact 0n the coffee cultural landscape. To this goal the sound bridge will be approached as an ethnographic tool and a way for the artistic creation. The prevention of the environment is a topic that acquires relevance in the expressive forms of the contemporary art. It sees the need to manifest how pollution in all its variants puts in danger our ecosystem, economy and cultural identity.
As if I didn't
Zeynep Ozcan / Turkey
As if I didn’t is a hyper-real soundscape of a dream. Composed of field recordings, it tells a story of an individual’s struggle with waking up, as she tries to find her way through a synthetic environment of abstract and real objects. The piece starts with a gloomy atmosphere that includes very few representational sounds. But as the piece moves forward, a balance between concrete and abstract sounds emerge to signal the individuals “ascent” to consciousness, This consciousness, however, swings back and forth between reality and a dream. The final gesture blows the whistle on the narrative of the piece.
Carlos Gárate / Spain
SUB is a sound performance that aims, by exploring the acoustic activity of the underground, to make audible sound spectra that normally go unnoticed. With SUB Carlos tries to explore the sounds of the Anthropocene, the geological epoch that follows the Holocene. In this era humans have become the most relevant geological force on Earth. Human activity has irreversibly changed the composition of the atmosphere, the oceans and even the Earth’s crust.

Concerning the circumference of a circle the beginning and the end are common. Herakleitos of Ephesos Fragments 8 and 103. Une rencontre is intended as a “virtuoso” piece where short vocal samples are deeply processed together with acoustic instruments samples and synthesized elements in order to achieve or at least tending toward a total fusion of these elements. It is not just a mixing work, but instead it is the fusion of more sound objects in one, mainly through convolution algorithms. In this way I especially researched for a spectral merging of voice and acoustic or electronic instruments.

The louder bridge was recorded on the center streets in. Manizales town, it shows a reflection about the view of the city. It has been seen behind the particular places and spaces that work and establish feelings in her people. They confirm the existence and the roads make places for the people that every day walk on there... In a constant and louder place while the time goes on impregnated for the daily routine.
Dark Path #6
Anna Terzaroli / Italy
This piece is a part of the “Dark Path” series. This electroacoustic music focuses on sound marks of a sonic landscape. It embodies a sense of history beyond itself. Beyond the analysis of the used recordings, there is a history that is personal. The piece aims to examine and explore the transformative possibilities of the computer music.
