Biblioteca de cuerdas y nudos - Biblioteca de ruidos y sonidos

Because we like it a great deal, we are repeating the installation-library of memory that José Antonio Portillo gave us last year. A silent dialogue between the viewer's gaze and the fragments of life that its shelves contain, guided skilfully by the author. 
But be careful, the Biblioteca de cuerdas y nudos  [Library of strings and knots] has not returned alone: this season it acts as a counterpoint to the Biblioteca de ruidos y sonidos [Library of noises and sounds], a stage project currently in development that will allow you to take centre stage. When you enter the Biblioteca de ruidos y sonidos you will have an experience with the world of sounds and their relationship with each of us. It is an octagonal library which produces a metaphor for our brain and the system that we use to relate to the world of sound around us, guided in real time by the percussionist Enric Monfort. You will see how we gather, categorize, store and transform all the sounds in a process that simultaneously explores the physical process itself and its emotional significance.
