x The art of listening – Francesc Ticó
Music, like architecture, is art in its purest form. To reproduce and enjoy live music or study, the geometry and materials with which the spaces where you listen are built, contribute significantly to how you appreciate it and how it affects your emotion. We will speak of soundproofing and acoustic conditioning in mixing and recording rooms in recording studios, auditoriums and theaters. Throughout the centuries, we will see the evolution from how the man was struggling to amplify without loudspeakers or microphones, making incredible architectural works full of ingenuity and completely efficient to the most sophisticated recording studios that make use of Different techniques, always to achieve the desired goal: to listen to music.

x Sound installation: Voice silenced – Datalash and Francesc Ticó
The radio that was the means of massive information and communication of beginnings of the 20th century allowed the people to hear the voice of the chief executive officers for the first time, and was used as a powerful political tool.
Voz silenciada is a reflection in the form of installation of Laura Martínez de Guereñu’s phrase: “The story has not been fair with Lilly Reich”, making an analogy between microphone and history. The installation of a microphone is proposed as the interface that collected or transmitted the voice of Mies Van der Rohe and Lilly Reich for the broadcasting of his work in history. Lilly Reich’s voice was relegated to the background, in the story and in the memory of this major work in the history of architecture, the microphone symbolizes the story that has not picked up its trajectory and that, therefore, has muted Installation elements: The installation consists of a microphone with a foot on a carpet. The carpet is the drawing of the dead parts of the capture of the microphone, that is to say, the dead parts of the transmission of the story. In this polar balloon of capture the name of Mies and Lilly Reich located respectively in the points of maximum and minimum catchment of the globe has been written.
Sound artistic expressions designed to explain the architecture from the creative immersion and to influence the architectural experience of the public.
