Resonantiae Futurae project
with Femina Faber, which, the next year, also involved the transmedial

started with the artist Carlos Ferrando i Bellés, producing
can be defined as the result of the encounter/confrontation between
sculpture, photography and infrasounds.
He curated the sound for Interno 8 – la fleur coupée with Silvia

continued in 2016 with sound on her work Ring around the Rosie, which
