Deformation Studies by Hugo Esquinca at Sonic Acts Festival
Hugo Esquinca (DE/MX)
Deformation Studies on Dimension and Structure for Fifteen Point Three is a mediation between the potential of localisation through audio within the Pentacle system, the programming of each modulations of sound according to this capacity, and the acoustic resonances of the Stedelijk Museum.
This gradual intervention, whose changes are indeterminately structured, is thought of as an unfolding of an organisation rather than a composition with defined parts. There is no imposition of a specific form, location or movement to pre-recorded audio but the emergence of sonorous events which are specific and non-repeatable.
This piece was co-commissioned by A4 and Sonic Acts as part of Re-Imagine Europe, a project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
In the context of Sonic Acts Festival 2019, Hugo Esquinca’s live performance of “Deformation Studies” will take place on 22 February on 22:00 at Stedelijk Museum (Schiphol Lounge) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. A playback will take place on 24 February at 15:15 at the same place.
