‘Romper el Silencio’ (Break the Silence) is a concert-environment, or songscape, that proposes a fluidity between personal expression and its outside. For this version it invites to walk along the room, to listen from different positions, to seat on the floor, etc. During the presentation you can enter or leave the room at any point.



This work arose from a real-time interaction between songs and soundscapes in Chile’s V Region. It consists of a multi-speaker sound environment, video projections, voice and a piano-ear in which underwater recordings, conversations with fishermen, fragments of songs and autonomous computer processes create t between a creation of personal expression and a listening to an environment outside of it.

By personal expression we can understand those sounds that ‘I’ want. The noise I intentionally produce, listen, imagine. Its outside is every noise to this ‘I’. The limit between the one and the the other is traced in a horizon of silence. This silence only exists as that which we silence to listen to certain noises.
