SONIDOS (2017- ) is an on-going collaboration with the The Colombian American Cultural Society and Colombian people across Rhode Island exploring Colombianidad through sound.
A mix of oral history, environmental sound, and fragments of informal conversations, the ever expanding SONIDOS exhibit immerses the public in a multilayered sound experience that invites visitors to sift through the competing sounds to receive story from a constantly shifting aural landscape. The Cultural Society hopes that the exhibit will help to link contemporary experiences to histories of migration to the Blackstone Valley, and foster connections across generations of Colombians living in Rhode Island.
This project is supported in part by AS220 and a National Endowment for the Arts ArtWorks grant.
