Esculturas sonoras: una exploración de los componentes mínimos del entorno

Servidor Local presents Esculturas sonoras: una exploración de los componentes mínimos del entorno, individual exhibition by Mario Rodríguez where he reflects on the auditory memory of manual and artisanal work spaces based on the electronic intervention of his objects and tools, for the generation of sound pieces.

The exhibition Esculturas sonoras: una exploración de los componentes mínimos del entorno is the continuation of Mario Rodriguez's sound, material and technical exploration in projects such as “Jirones Sonoros” (SACPC 2021). This exhibition focuses more specifically on two craft workshops: a body shop and painting workshop, and a traditional barbecue kitchen. Investigate the sound identity of each one, reproducing it in objects/speakers extracted from each workshop. The contrast of the sounds and objects found in both workshops are as opposite as the place that each one has in the cultural imagination. Tinsmithing is usually associated as a typically masculine, rough and dirty activity. Traditional cooking is usually understood as a feminine and delicate work where hygiene and ancestral knowledge are celebrated. The exhibition brings together both scenarios and invites the viewer to experience them from their sound.
