La Ausencia Como Lenguaje

by Lucas Alvarado



How is abandonment expressed when there is no one to contemplate it?

La Ausencia Como Lenguaje is comprised of a series of sound reflections on the absence of people in sites built by and for humans, and about the absence of art in our reality. Abandonment and absence are sometimes thought of as being consequences of crisis, but they became essential traits of our cultural landscape in a post-pandemic time.

Lucas Alvarado is a Chilean composer and viola da gamba player, based in France. He studied at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Lyon and the Hochschule für Musik in Leipzig, specialising in early music and electroacoustic composition. Currently, in Lyon, he develops a multidisciplinary project that fuses medieval music, electronic composition, dance and video mapping. At the same time, he is an artist-in-residence as DJ for Noods Radio (UK), Radio Béguin (Fr) and Kapital Radio (Pl) making broadcasts around the world, experimental music, field recordings and sound art.
