Coefficient of friction is a project presented at the Eufònic 2016 festival (Museu de Tortosa and Arts Santa Mònica de Barcelona), based on the sonification of the Russian composer Eduard Artemeyev, whose musical identity makes an exhibition of natural sounds and noises as creative elements, without attending to the special need of the specific composition of a complementary musical soundtrack.

In this way, a process of traditional musical composition that works as an acoustic accompaniment of the compositional space does not appear in his work. The sonification is narrated through the action of the elements, the water and the different noises that are obtained from the landscape, thus reflecting an alternative reality that does not correspond to a one-dimensional unity of the images presented.

Under the influence of the acoustic work of Artemeyev, the project approaches sound as a form of poetic tune, where the composers of the auditory process are the natural elements themselves. During the realization of the project, the different processes of friction between instrument and space will be addressed, as a creative value of acoustic composition.
