The University of Alberta Museums presents You, the Wind and the Sound by Nicolás Arnáez at the University of Alberta Museums Galleries at Enterprise Square. As a partner in the Exhibiting Soundproject, we are happy to present this interactive installation, which allows the visitor the become the composer and performer of their own sound creations. 

The main goal of this installation is to show that interactivity between the person and the piece is what allows the music to exist. Number VI: Vos, el Viento y el Sonido [You, the Wind and the Sound] is a sound installation based on the live processing of the sound of eight different material-made wind chimes.

About Exhibiting Sound

Exhibiting Sound is a symposium intended to advance creative, collective, blue-sky thinking about exhibiting sound: its natures, purposes, environments, and technologies; the processes of its curation; its relation to visual culture; and its role as creative, pedagogical, and scholarly output, across all the academic disciplines. 

All events are open to the general public, and have been arranged with cooperation and sponsorship from units at the University of Alberta, as well as local arts and culture organizations and institutions, including the Royal Alberta Museum, the Art Gallery of Alberta, and the DC3 gallery of Edmonton. 

See for event schedules and details, and registration information.

As part of the University of Alberta Museums, the Canadian Centre for Ethnomusicology is one of 29 diverse museum collections located in faculties and departments across campus where they are used daily in teaching, research and community outreach programs.
