Hector Centeno is a new media artist working with sound, technology and interactivity. His sound art pieces, installation collaborations and live performances have been presented at the Sounds Electric ’05 festival in Ireland, Sound Travels and SOUNDplay festivals in Toronto, Nuit Blanche festival, Concordia University Harvest Moon Festivals and at art centres in Colombia and Uruguay. In his work, he seeks to achieve a good balance between spontaneous, intuitive expression and rationality, motivated by an exploration of our experiences of time, place, space, consciousness and mindfulness.
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.
