Tele-Cymatics by Nela Brown & Andrea Bravo at Hangar Sound

july 20 th 2018 - Sala Ricson

On July 20, Hangar hosts Tele-Cymatics, a collaboration between Andrea Bravo (visual artist) and Nela Brown (sound artist), a proposal that will combine an introductory workshop to cymatics, followed by a performance.

Cymatics allows us to see the structure of sound at the moment of its creation and reveal its patterns. During the performance, “soundscapes” of Barcelona will be combined with a projection of visuals generated by cymatics, corresponding to the sounds of Barcelona. In this way we will be able to visualize the geometry of the sounds of Barcelona.
