Please excuse cross-postings:

'Itinerarios del Sonido' is a public art project that proposes to the
citizens and visitors of Madrid new perspectives on the city.

Fourteen different artists (including composers, poets, visual
artists...) visited Madrid between December 2004 and February 2005,
explored different contexts of the city, and selected one as the
point of departure for a new sound piece composed for 'Itinerarios
del Sonido'.

From 21st May to 25th September 2005, each piece is installed in a
bus stop located at the specific area chosen by the artist, and
everybody is able to listen to it by plugging into the bus stop the
headphones of their walkman, discman, MP3 player...

During their visit to Madrid, the artists invited to the
project presented their previous work in a series of lectures,
concerts and round tables that took part at the historical Residencia
de Estudiantes. The video recordings of these events are currently
available in a space devoted to the project by the Centro Cultural
Conde Duque (which will also be running until 25th September). A
catalogue including a DVD with this audiovisual material and a
documentary about the evolution of the project, along with a
recording of the pieces on two CDs and a book with texts written by
the artists, curators and critics will appear by the end of this year.

The list of artists includes Vito Acconci, Jorge Eduardo Eielson,
Julio Estrada, Luc Ferrari, Bill Fontana, Susan Hiller, Christina
Kubisch, Fernando Millan, Kristin Oppenheim, Joao Penalva, Adrian
Piper, Francisco Ruiz de Infante, Daniel Samoilovich and Trevor

'Itinerarios del Sonido' is organized by the Council of Madrid, the
Centro Cultural Conde Duque and the Residencia de Estudiantes, and
curated by Maria Bella and Miguel Alvarez Fernandez.
