New Cassette Release “And The Voice Became Space”

The sound of my installation “Kanichu Manchu Icha Llullacunichu” is available now in cassette via Fougére Musique Label (France). I called the release “And The Voice Became Space”. If you want to buy the cassette please visit the bandcamp site of the label (link below). This installation was part of “La Grande Exposition D’Art Sonore #1” (Nantes, 2011). Because a confrontation with the organizers of that exhibition, my piece had been censured by them, so my credits are omitted  in their on-line documentation about this exhibition. To read more about the content of my installation and to find images of the exhibition’s catalogue (without censorship), please visit this link. PLAY IT LOUD!

Aloardi Solstice Noise Procession


To celebrate the solstice , we design special dresses to dance and walk around the streets.  As part of our dresses we build some circuits that reacts to the sun-light and we mix these sounds with Andean traditional dance music specially distorted  for this occasion. The audience join us with some sound instruments that they bring to play during the celebration. Below some pictures of Aurora, Sajjra & Castillo, the Aloardi clan in metamorphosis some hours before the procession.

“Yesterday evening joined an absolute great event and show in R’dam Noord. First a book presentation by Patricia Pinheiro de Sousa at our printer de Boog followed up by a street parade by artist collective Aloardi (artists from Peru) to celebrate their traditional beginning of summer. They were all dressed up with masks and colorfull dresses…we all had to make sound/music. The walk ended at galerie Mirta DeMare for the finissage of the show Do It With Us by artist who participate in Filmwerkplaats workshop. Around twelve 16mm projection spread all over the galerie. SUPER! I think this is the most exiting show I have seen in a long time” (Robert Hamenlijck)

* Do It With Us * Exhibition @ Mirta Demare Art gallery


‘Do It With Us’
29 May – 25 June 2016
Mirta Demare Art gallery, Rotterdam

Bergsingel 176-B, 3037 GN Rotterdam, NL
Open on Thursday, Friday, Saturday: 13:00 – 18:00hrs and by appointment.

With Aloardi (Gabriel Castillo Aguero, Christian Galarreta), Filmwerkplaats (Nan Wang, Yoana Buzova, Judith van der Made, Juul van der Laan, Bart Koppe, Coen Janssen, Patrícia Chaves) and misprint-it (Patrícia Pinheiro de Sousa). Curated by Janneke van der Putten

Exhibition ‘Do It With Us’ presents a programme with three artist-initiatives that share their creative processes in a group or a collective. Aloardi, Filmwerkplaats and misprint-it are examples of platforms that exchange knowledge and ideas by creating alternative learning situations or environments. Through their practices, they contribute to a vital cultural field of artistic experiments and actions such as film, publications, sounds, and workshops.

Inspired by the vitality of encounters and interactions, Aloardi, Filmwerkplaats and misprint-it develop their own tools and methods, contributing to a repertoire of artistic forms brought back into the cultural field. Their performative projects, for instance, often deal with (mis)used analogue and digital technologies. An example of this is reusing trash, hacking the functionality of devices, generating feedback or intervening on found footage.

Looking at the world through an attitude that confronts daily life reality, more than the arts, and using error and failure as a starting point, they play with the status quo that is inspired by their collective spirit. The members and partners of Aloardi, Filmwerkplaats and misprint-it deal with a sense of community in a society that has all the inspiration needed to vitalize that what is already there.

Programme ‘Do It With Us’
Sunday 29 May

For the exhibition opening misprint-it would like to invite the audience to produce a ‘common book’, to which each person visiting the exhibition can contribute with one sheet (4 pages). The interventions can be very simple, or very elaborate. Think for instance of a nine year old who really wants to take time to fill up her/his page, or for instance, a thirty-one who doesn’t feel like participating but still decides to contribute with a blank page. Everything is possible. This ‘artist book’ is open to everyone, to every schedule, but still, it will be exclusive to the time frame of the exhibition. All the pages will be presented in the exhibition as well the process of binding this book together, during during the following week. The book should be ready half-way the exhibition and available for the finissage, where everyone will be invited to see it/read it.
