Artist Statement:


    “Flores Sonicas, viaje a la intimidad del sonido” is a sound installation inspired by the harmony and peaceful coexistence of different sonic ecosystems. A 24 channel system using alternative loudspeakers made with paper, metal, cardboard and totumos diffuse a sound work composed of soundscapes recordings from the Manizales region and from the west coast of Finland. The installation has been designed to share the acoustic space of the exhibition space inventing to a holistic experience. Aquatrio presents a sound installation performance made of small sonic sculptural modules spread around in a garden and resonating multicultural diversities of both Finland and Manizales region. The detailed nuances of the sonic experience will take the audience into a subtle and intimate listening adventure. Visitors can feel how divergent sonic ecosystems organize themselves as a supportive and colorful whole and how listening is a key to creating this whole.

Aquatrio has realized projects and concerts in Turku, Helsinki, Venice, Ljubljana, Weimar, Mexico City, Morelia, Cuernavaca, and Oaxaca.
