The burden of identity



"The burden of identity" is about the limits of soundscape's identity. This proposal is a commitment to listen to a place to understand the social structures that are associated with many of the urban and natural sounds to which we are exposed, where the soundscape reflects on itself from sound recordings and field interviews carried out in Amposta.

The soundscape is becoming increasingly iconic and stereotypical, emphasizing the need to create our own identity in our listening by establishing the boundaries between global and local places. Therefore, the artist faces the challenge of elaborating a new reinterpretation of the landscape to reconstruct our own identity as listeners.

This sound installation was part of a collective exhibition at Lo Pati, Amposta (Spain) (2014) More info about it → here, here, here and here.

Many thanks to Vicent Fibla, Blanca Rego and Miguel Ayesa.
