Balam Ronan - La escucha de lo cotidiano - La escucha que transforma - Acción 1

Balam Ronan

Balam Ronan made field recordings daily at 6 pm during a year, in the city of Queretaro, Mexico. In short, he recorded what was happening in the place where he was at that time every day. These phonographic registers of everyday life are a strong invitation to reflect about our listening habits; to activate our listening in fact, and to question our ways of communication and attention. Also, this part of the project is published with a length of six hours, expanding the possibilities of digital publishing and mp3.

Israel Martínez - Mareah (or the heart of darkness)


Three hours field recording in a rough sea. Martinez suggests to play this register as an audio installation, placing the speakers wherever we want, sharing the recording with whoever is around, including our neighbours. A homage to the great writer Joseph Conrad and, at the same time, a recording that challenges the limits and formats of listening and mp3 due to its length.
