“Registro de vientos menores”, by Raquel G. Ibáñez

On May 21st, Hangar will host Raquel G. Ibáñez’s performance Registro de vientos menores, a profound exploration into the interplay between “Pneuma” and “Ánima” through the mediums of wind and voice. This ongoing artistic investigation delves into the sonic landscapes shaped by the aeolian harp, the pipe organ, and the human voice, aiming to unveil the nuanced qualities of moving air while challenging the notion of a singular “natural voice” as an inherent human trait.

The project’s title, Registro de vientos menores (Register of Minor Winds), reflects its commitment to uncovering the subtle, often overlooked aspects of our environment, subtly hinting at the fragility inherent in the ecosystems we inhabit. Drawing inspiration from the works of Almo Farina, Jérôme Sueur, and Tania Rubio in soundscape ecology, as well as from Susan McClary’s exploration of “feminine cadences” or “minor cadences,” the project embraces a sonic landscape closer to the continuous drone, eschewing traditional narrative structures in favor of fluid modulation and exploration.

This artistic endeavor is not confined to a static form; rather, it evolves organically, shaped by the diverse landscapes it encounters. Spanning from late 2022 to 2024, the project has traversed various stages across Spain and Chile. Its decentralized nature finds expression through a myriad of mediums, including performative conferences, exhibition installations, book publications slated for 2025, and culminating in immersive sound performances.

This activity unfolds in collaboration with Dilalica, within the framework of the exhibition Mecamísticas, curated by Sergi Álvarez Riosalido.
