Coreto is a ephemeral installation created in collaboration with Penique Productions.

A tailor-made balloon expands filling the whole pavilion and becoming part of its own architecture. The inflatable acts as a boundary, framing a new space where the audience is welcome to enter and interact with the building completely transformed by a new texture. 

Inside, a light-colored installation is triggered by the sound. The sonic composition is based on several recordings from the city and a live processed microphone that takes the sound from the outside in real-time. This type of constructions were commonly used to stage musicians that were playing for the city. With Coreto we aim to create a listening experience where the city plays for the building, and the audience is invited to slow down, listen and experience the urban soundscape in a completely different way.
