_Toronto_05apr2014_ is a multichannel sound performance that creates subtle soundscapes through virtual three-dimensional sonic spaces. The artist makes sound-field recordings prior to the event while performing attentive sound walks within the city. The experiences and recordings gathered are then used as the source for live improvisation, allowing the artist to explore the concepts of ecology and awareness through sound.
New Media Artist Hector Centeno works with sound and technology. His interactive sound installations and performances have been presented at the Sounds Electric ’05 Festival in Ireland, Sound Travels Festival and SOUNDplay Festival in Toronto, among others, and internationally in Colombia and Uruguay. Motivated by the experience of mindfulness, Centeno seeks to strike a balance between intuition and rationality. www.hcenteno.net
