"ALDEZ KONTRA". Sound intervention.
Tabakalera, Donostia. Radio Symposium LaPublika. October 28th 2016
From a hill near a city, we can hear the compact murmur created by the ensemble that blurs with the different sounds coming from below, in a constant flow that rises and falls. If we consider the speed of sound, and supposing that this hill is, for example, one kilometer from the city, each sound would need about 3 seconds to reach us, entangled in that murmur. This fact enables us to imagine the city’s constant emission. As if responding to a slap with another slap, we will oppose that flow with a counterflow, gathering up what the city emits and returning it from Tabakalera. And just as listening to a recording of one’s own voice causes estrangement, we will see what happens when we hear our usual cityscape recorded.
