How can we make a song that serves to relate ourselves with a place? Planting a sound-stone is not an easy task: it means understanding the landscape as something alive, that transforms us and that we transform. We will compose a piece-stone of music that relates us to the place where we want to plant it; attending to the cycles, to the rhythms, to the beings that inhabit it, amplifying them with the imagination. Playing with everyday tactile technology, we will use mobile phones and tablets to make record field, sampling and effects, with the aim of building a collective totem-sound that we can cultivate in this village.
Run by Menhir. Coco Moya and Iván Cebrián
The Menhir collective is formed by the visual artist Coco Moya and the musician Iván Cebrián. Both work on performances, installations and sound pieces that relate to the landscape as a score. Their work has been awarded by LABjoven Los Bragales, CNP Partners, or the Community of Madrid, and has been exhibited, among others, at Azkuna Zentroa, Museum of Human Evolution, or CICUS. They are currently developing a project at Sierralab, granted by Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation.
