Sound Oasis

Sound Oasis

Palacio de Bellas Artes,
Mexico City, Mexico
September–December 2004

Created to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Mexico City’s Palacio de Bellas Artes, Sound Oasis showcased especially commissioned site and time specific work from twelve international artists.

Playing twenty four hours a day seven days a week over a two month period, the purpose of the installation was to create a Sound Oasis that interacted with the surrounding urban context and lush South American climate.

For the project, Illustrious teamed up with Arup acoustics to install the three dimensional audio system as well as spacialise the soundscapes created by the twelve artists.

In partnership with Banamex, Noise Lab, and Arup Acoustics.
