I want to explore the communication between the glass creatures and humans through sound and how do humans interpret them. Delving into the emotional qualities of sound and how they can be used to convey meaning and create a connection between the creatures and the audience, bridging the gap between different life forms and finding common ground through shared experiences.

The vibrations of shattered glass produce a unique, enigmatic sound that births mysterious creatures. "CREATURES" is a synesthetic experience that merges performance and installation, taking audiences on a dreamlike journey.
The creatures are futuristic mobile marionettes made of geometric glass shapes hanging from an imperceptible thread. Glass is a personal material, as it evokes memories from my childhood, during which my father worked for a German glass company. The creatures' "voice" is the sound they emit, challenging our understanding of sound experiences. Composed of glass sound recordings, noises from the creatures' movements, and the sounds of the Piano Glass, an instrument that merges the sounds of piano and glass, the project encourages audiences to contemplate the emotional and communicative qualities of sound.
The installation consists of creatures that are moved by an automation system hidden in a metal plate positioned above the dancers, creating a live performance performed by machines. Each piece of glass is strategically balanced to maintain its proper position while retaining the ability of movement. The sound composition is created by the movement of the glass and its clinking overlapped by an ambient sound created electronically with the manipulation of the glass sound.
In the early stages of this project, Marina Avila collaborated with the artist and her work was fundamental in the installation of motors and the creation of the initial code. Her initial contribution to the project is appreciated and acknowledged.
The sound is the creature's “voice”, composed by glass sound recordings and noises created by the movement of the creatures and the sounds of the Piano Glass, an instrument that blends sounds of piano and glass. It questions how we understand sound experiences and bridges the gap between different life forms, creating a connection between the creatures and the audience.

Through exploring the communication between the glass creatures and humans through sound, the emotional qualities of sound are used to convey meaning, creating a connection between the creatures and the audience. The project challenges the perception of the audience and questions how they interpret the creatures, bridging the gap between different life forms and finding common ground through shared experiences.
Overall, the project explores the relationship between sound and visual art, pushing the boundaries between traditional disciplines and prompting viewers to consider the nature of sound objects, visual objects, and performance. By questioning and exploring our perceptions, the project aims to create a more conscious and connected society, inviting the audience to join in a journey of discovery.
