Mixtape contest Art and its sound

25th may – 8th june 2012

Within the framework of this project, LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial invites you to participate in a mixtape contest about the sounds of the Art Center.

Art and its soundis a project produced by LABoral, coordinated by José Manuel Costa in collaboration with Juanjo Palacios, which seeks to create a sound map of LABoral when many of its rooms are sonically activated: exhibition Visualize the sound, curated by Fiumfoto that is presented until June 25, and Ryoji Ikeda’s Datamatics that will remain until the end of the year.

Four collaborators (Óscar de Ávila, Rafael Martínez del Pozo, Ramón Prada, the Mind Revolution Collective and Las CasiCasiotone) have made recordings from which four sound approaches will emerge on different aspects of that sound environment (people, works in the exhibition, spatiality and other sounds from the center) that will make up an hour-long CD.

As part of this project, a mixtape contest is proposed, made with the recordings made available to the artists at:

The mixtapes will be published on the project’s bandcamp, the winner will be published on the LABoral website and the winner will receive one of the few extra-limited edition CDs that will be published with the content of the project.
