This Saturday I will participate with a new piece called “ECHOmmunication” in a great sonic gatering by artist Consol Llùpia - RITUAL PARA LA BALLENA DEL PRAT
The event will be at Hangar.org with many amazing artists... here a little more info about the event and about my piece.
On May 4 at 4pm the artist Consol Llupià organizes, together with Cachichi, an afternoon of sonic farewell to the skeleton of the whale that was found 35 years ago on the beach of El Prat and that has remained restricted ever since in the facilities of the Barcelona zoo. ▫️
ECHOmmunication ._ a piece by Julio Cesar Palacio| Sun Color
with the participation of Daphne Xanthopoulou, Blazej Kotowski, Raúl Dávila and Giulia Paradell.
This piece made for the event is based on the echolocation and communication of the whales and how it has been affected by the sound/noise of large ships in the ocean. ▫️
-The low rumble of passing ships has long been connected to the disturbance of large whales. ▫️
These noise disturbances could be hindering the ability of whales to communicate and echolocate – the process of using sound to bounce off objects such as prey and identify where they are-

Friday 22: “Music For Rubber Tape” with the collaboration of a local performer @ Vapaan Taiteen Tila, Helsinki.

▲ MARCH 11
One of my GOALS for this year is to spend time at the studio to record new music for a posible NEW LP Release later this year. Also, there are a lot of documents (sounds) from Sound Pieces that have never been properly edited and uploaded (web) and I really want to work on these files and maybe use the BANDCAMP to have the audio of sound projects, installations, field recordings, etc…
So, the idea is to organize and document in a better way, better look my work…and of course, playing LIVE is also on the plans.

I´m really happy to present this NEW piece for Haimney Gallery with very special collaborations: The singer and artist Monica Mussungo who will guide this experience with her voice, and visual artist MarlenePieroth who is responsible for the visual content.
Curated by Blanc Zuria White
//Saturday 23rd Feb 7pm
It is an experience and a listening exercise. It is a piece intended for the reception of sounds in detail and how these affects us individually. Through the use of sound in its purest and most fundamental essence, the piece is composed with different sections, dynamics, spatial reflections, vibrations, timbres, etc. to be absorbed by the listener. The sound as vibration, the body as a receiver and the mind as a guide in a "sound travel”.
I use the idea of a "travel" as an experience of internal journey open to the perception and resonance in each individual. This piece "Requires the temporary suspension of judgments and the willingness to receive new information, whether pleasant, unpleasant or neutral”. -D.L Quote
Sound travel is inspired and has as references the teachings of Pauline Oliveros (Deep Listening), the sound pieces by Alvin Lucier and compositions by Morton Feldman, among others.
Sound travel is not a meditation or a therapy, it is a sound-spatial experience and an invitation to listen.

We measure a reverberation time of about 8 to 10 seconds. Trully amazing! one of the coolest places I ever being.

September is a crazy month! The Modular Day Festival this year in his 3rd Edition is coming on September 24th organized by yours truly and Befaco!
that is a lots of work already... but since the 1st Edition of this festival I thought that it was becoming in a festival too much beat and dance oriented and the artistic and abstract part of the electronic composition and the "experimental" it was getting lost ... but actually this is the only part that I am interested to promote and show at this festival.
For this year I teamed up with Lina Bautista from La Orquesta del Caos, to organize and curate a special Exhibition focused on sound composers that are working with electronics and present their works in a Octophonic Speaker Installation. We called this "SONIC ROOM" because it is an exhibition in a room with a studied distribution of speakers in space and a special Spatialization made specifically for each of the composer pieces for the room.
BEN VIDA - D/P/I - FRANCISCO LOPEZ - THOMAS ANKERSMIT
ANDREW PEKLER - ROBERT AIKI AUBREY LOWE - BEATRIZ FERREYRA
ERIC FRYE - SUN COLOR - LINALAB
It is a great honor to have the participation of these great artists
SONIC ROOM will be presented on the Modular Day festival on September 24th at the Hangar Center of Arts - Barcelona

@ Miscelänea, Barcelona!!!!
Yes, we are BACK together… my homies NONHORSE (G.Lucas Crane) and PAM FINCH will be in town for a unique concert together at Miscelänea!
The 3 of us, have being doing gigs together since we met in (New York, Massachusetts, Berlin & Barcelona) sometimes even playing improvised sets together :)
For this gig, Sun Color will try to explain what is going on during the performance…this is a way of explain in real time what is happening in this abstract type of music, what is the sound source, what´s the gear that´s being used, the transitions and movements. I just thought that sometimes with experimental composition the people think is weird, unexplainable and hermetic and hard to follow what the composer is doing, performing and how the sound and the whole set works… I will display a video projection in real time in which I will tweet (Twitter) explaining every aspect and movements that are happening in the performance.
