Raul Romero: Onomonopoetics of a Puerto Rican Landscape
11:00 AM-5:00 PM
Onomonopoetics of a Puerto Rican Landscape is a performative and interactive work that responds to the diverse backgrounds that make up Miami. The evolving project will be based at Locust Projects starting September 12 with initial performances in the public sphere taking place through October 10, 2020. The project explores how people in Miami connect back to their homeland, in the case of the artist, Puerto Rico. Romero creates an acoustic ecology using his field recordings of the coqui, a small iconic frog native to Puerto Rico. The distinct sound will be transmitted alongside the everyday urban sounds onsite at Locust Projects and throughout Miami via a cargo tricycle converted into a mobile sound transmission station.
