Experimental Actions And Sound Arts in San Miguel

By Dyan Pritamo

Both experimental actions and sound arts, in a broad sense, are based on musical practices that use sound as its starting point, applying exploration techniques that push existing limits and genre definitions. It’s practice dates back to the first decades of the XX century, deriving in genres like Musique Concrete, Electroacoustic Music, Experimental Electronic Music, Sound Art, and Free Improvisation, among others. By nature, it implies a counter-culture position which main commitment is to push towards new possibilities. It’s about people and the search for something different, as much as it is about the sound.

The last 30 years have seen these practices gaining importance, with a growing global audience thirsty of interesting, complex, advanced approaches to sound and art. More and more Festivals, Museums, Art Houses, Galleries, etc., are giving space to Sound Art, New Media Art, and all the intersections between Art, Science, and Technology.

As an ongoing effort to bring adventurous forward thinking expressions to San Miguel, h)3ar is a project that focuses on gestating deep listening sessions around experimental sound actions and workshops with artists whose work is linked to processes that integrate sound, technology, science, electronic arts, image and improvisation.

The past four editions of h)3ar presented renown artists from México, Norway, USA and Lithuania. On March 3, we will have a line-up featuring Ale Hop and Luis Alvarado from Lima, Peru, The Norwegian Band MoE, experimental electronics act Sûrinx and a extreme Sax / Guitar duo formed by Martín Escalante and Arthur Henry Fork.

h)3ar Sessions is a Taller 30 initiative, a collaborative space in Colonia San Antonio run by a group of artists that work around these practices. The vision behind it is to be a nodal point that allows the general public to have a close look at advanced practices that are not otherwise available in San Miguel. Our commitment is to share knowledge, generate community and trigger the local interest in these practices. Thus, we are interested in generating an inclusive horizontal community interaction, to convene a public that’s open to new experiences, to plant the seed of curiosity in new generations and provide a space in which all this can happen.

So come and experience it by yourself, it is by the involvement and presence of the community that this initiative can continue bringing one of a kind avant-garde performances.
