Sian Ka’an Biosphere Soundscapes Residency (from 26th of October to 4th of November)

This residency is part of an educational program designed by Biosphere Soundscapes with a focus on collaboration, experimentation and exploration. This interdisciplinary learning laboratory will involve participants exploring the environment through sound, learning about the Sian Ka’an biosphere reserve and collaborating with a dynamic team at the intersection of art, science and technology.

As part of the Mexican Soundscape project, Fonoteca Nacional is working in collaboration with Biosphere Soundscapes to produce this artistic residency and interdisciplinary laboratory focusing on the creative and scientific possibilities of listening. Biosphere Soundscapes is designed to inspire communities across the world to listen to the environment and explore the value of sound as a measure for environmental health and ecological engagement in UNESCO Biosphere Reserves. The inaugural residency in Mexico will be centered on sonic exploration of the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve in Quintana Roo, Mexico.

After an overwhelming response and reviewing numerous fantastic applications, we are pleased to announce the selection results for our Sian Ka’an Biosphere Soundscapes Residency in Mexico. This is the final list of confirmed participants:

Mexico: Manrico Montero, Andrea Ancira, David Escalante
International: Felix Blume (FR/MX), Jono Gilmurray (UK), Kate Carr (AU/UK)

Congratulations to all of our selected residents! We are thrilled to have built such a strong team and are looking forward to our first residency in Mexico.
Biosphere Soundscapes Workshops will be led by Garth Paine and Sandra Gallo in addition to other members of the Biosphere Soundscapes team.
