THE TWO SOUND SCULPTURES OF "TRÍO TRUNA (TX3)"

EL TORO CÓSMICO—THE CÓSMIC BULL (from 1995 on) El Toro Cósmico is a sound sculpture and invented musical instrument which can sound on its own, be affected by movement and sounds in the environment, as well as be maneuvered with its built-in controls. It runs on lead batteries which makes it independent to play and be exhibited in public spaces. The sound originates from a closed circuit, formed by various amplifiers, preamps, and effect pedals interveened and connected in series. It is based on a mix between direct contact with the metal parts of the sculpture, and the microphone which produces random continous sounds. Materials: Recycled electronic spare parts, plastics, magnets and metal.

EL ATRÍL DEL FUTURO—MUSIC STAND FROM THE FUTURE (from 1998 on)

El Atríl del Futuro is both a sound sculpture and an invented musical instrument. It can sound on its own without any human intervention. At the same time, when touched by both palms of the hands, the sound changes. The human body becomes part of the instrument by acting as a resistor. It runs on lead batteries which makes it independent for being played and exhibited in public spaces.

The sound originates from a closed circuit, formed by a copper conductive wire which is extended on the surface of the stand and serves as part of the amplifier. It also has a small speaker and a small fm radio transmitter from different radio stations, creating an orchestra of sounds from the different signals.

Materials: Recycled electronic spare parts, plastics, glass, metal, springs and copper.

///FRAGMENT FROM "ART´S BIRTHDAY" LIVE AT "ARS SONORA & ARS ACUSTICA"///

Truna (Andrés Blasco) is a neo-dadaist, or rather a retro-futurist (he is also a founding member of “The Other College of ’Pataphysics”) based in Valencia (Spain). He defines himself as an “auto-luthier”, inventing and designing the musical instruments he plays with. His artistic practice finds his roots in such diverse fields as experimental rock, free improvisation, post-rock, performance art, contemporary dance, circus, sound installations… He is a member of the JOP duo, along with experimental poet Bartolomé Ferrando.
In this new performance, specially developed for the Ars Acustica Art’s Birthday Party 2016, Truna multiplies himself (interacting with video recordings in an open musical structure) forming a trio and playing instruments invented by the artist himself: “atril del futuro” —a music stand from the future—, “chelo-maleta-mágica” —cello-magic-suitcase— and the infamous “toro cósmico” —cosmic bull—. This retro-futuristic one-man orchestra will occupy the whole stereo panorama (left-center-right), in an impossible dialogue that celebrates the possibilities of both the radiophonic medium and sonic schizophrenia.
