Intercambio Sónico/Sonic Swap:

Presented in Partnership with Volta In Mexico City & Lawndale

December 6, 2020 from 3-7pm CT
Online Event: Twitch

We miss sharing physical space with our audience, and sharing in the sonic vibrations that emanate directly from instruments and bodies onto our own bodies and ears. Thankfully, problems can also present opportunities.

Since the beginning of its ongoing Acuerdo de Música Libre project in 2010, Nameless Sound has engaged in various collaborations within Mexico City’s deeply rooted and ever-evolving experimental music scene. Projects held both in Mexico City and Houston, have showcased the rich diversity of Mexico’s creative music offerings, often in collaboration with Houston’s own unique sonic voices.

On December 6, from 3-7pm CT we’ll be jumping back into the streaming game with another round of our Intercambio Sónico/Sonic Swap. Five performing artists from Mexico City will alternate with five performing artists from Texas for a diverse festival of soundmaking. It’s a big small world, and much creativity resonates from its vital nodes. Let’s connect and listen.
