Artist María Arnal and curator and researcher José Luis de Vicente present a sound essay on the traces of the climate crisis that combines the singer's musical compositions with dissemination and thought. The podcast is available both on digital platforms and in Room 1 of the CCCB, in a sound installation open to the public until October 16.
The installation is an exciting journey, in four chapters of 30 minutes each, through the sound of the Anthropocene. The sounds will take you through natural spaces, industrial architectures, laboratories and research centers in Barcelona. The tour is accompanied by the curious voices of philosophers, scientists, musicians, naturalists and researchers from various disciplines, from bioacoustics to astrophysics, from artificial intelligence to beekeeping.
This innovative sound essay combines popularization with music through the compositions that Maria Arnal performs on the stages where the series takes place. Among them we find versions of her acclaimed album with Marcel Bagés, Clamor, versions of other authors, traditional pieces and original instrumental pieces. Her voice is mixed with the noise of bees, birds, bells and all the elements that shape the soundscape of each stage. The project has been recorded entirely in binaural format, a technology that faithfully captures the acoustics of each environment.
