In December 2017, SFCA [isaw+subtropics] received a Knight Arts Challenge matching grant to produce AUDIOTHEQUE 2.0. Knight Foundation chose the project as a catalyst for the advancement of experimental music and sound art in our community.
Audiotheque 2.0 features a 30-channel sound system, a new order of sound art installation environment created by artist Gustavo Matamoros. This new multi-channel sound system is organized around four set configurations that can be used independently or together to exhibit new works of spatialized sound that offer visitors different kinds of immersive listening experiences. For the inauguration of Audiotheque 2.0 it was created a sound installation: “Four Audible Experiences of Movement of Sound in Space” conceived to highlight the full capabilities of the new sound system.
The first experience is called, “Everglades: Applied Universal Force for Charles Recher.” The second is titled, “String Solo for Vito Acconci.” Next comes “Small Sounds Up The Wall for Alison Knowles.” And last (but not least) is “Eighty Five Audible Moments for Pauline Oliveros.” In the months ahead of its debut, Matamoros will create additional content for the system in collaboration with sound artists from Miami and abroad, and for the benefit of the general public and members of the arts community. The aim is to provide sound art experiences not available elsewhere in South Florida.
