Gustavo Matamoros Distant Bats at Listening GalleryTuesday, November 26, 7pm-9pm – Listening Gallery, 810 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach

Artists in Residence in Everglades, Irreversible Mag and ArtCenter/ South Florida join with subtropics.org in celebration of the sound installation Distant Bats (for Skip Snow)—the first of several projects derived from the artist’s month-long residency at Everglades National Park. Copies of Irreversible Magazine will be available during the reception, some containing a simpler version of the installation in CD format accompanying an article by David Dunn.  Distant Bats (for skip snow) is a minimal sound installation project featuring bat calls recorded by Gustavo Matamoros in Everglades National Park. In the installation, these calls are intended to function as impulse responses for the acoustic activation of natural resonance in the reverberant environment that contains it. For this Listening Gallery version, its natural resonances are also artificially enhanced. This event is possible with funding from City of Miami Beach’s Cultural Affairs Program and Cultural Arts Council, and with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners. Sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
