Within the Fabrica Creative Labs, on Wednesday 26 May from 3.00 to 4.00pm CEST, Carlos Casas, filmmaker and visual artist, will hold an online lecture entitled SOUND, SOUND, SOUND.

Carlos Casas has a special interest in sound and soundscapes and his work encompasses film, sound and visual art.

He will discuss his sound research and the new physiological dimension of his practice, introducing sound as a new catalyst for contemporary artistic forms. He will also share his recent projects, from CEMETERY to the MAHALLA soundscape, up to his latest research KRAKATOA, and the sonic turning point of his path.

The lecture will be a journey into sound, from elephant communication, volcanic seismic signals, and human sound ecology footprints.
