Contemplating the flows of a river and delving into its way of oscillating, we appreciate how the water runs between the valleys in a serpentine way. The water in its natural state, never advances in a straight line if the influence of man does not intervene. What then causes the formation of oscillations? From the source of the waters, the circular movements will be influenced by the gravitational pull of the inclined plane of the mountains, furrowing and eroding valleys, oscillating from side to side forming meanders, whose rhythm is specific to the course of the water that describes them. A wide channel will cause wide oscillations, while a narrow one will oscillate more quickly, giving rise to smaller formations.

The sinusoidal flow of a natural river generates a set of subtle and invisible currents that can be interpreted and associated with cycles or frequencies. In this way, by assigning frequencies, we can generate sound landscapes associated with the oscillating shape of each river.

DEMO_2, brings together 5 different projects in Publication format, around the concept of "La Riada" from the different fields of action of each of the participants, under the baton of Fermín Jiménez Landa.

“Vishnu, after entering the water, cautiously stirred it. The waves spread. As they followed each other, a tiny depression formed between them. This void is the Ether, the subtlest of the five elements and bearer of the invisible and intangible sensory quality of sound. Space resounded and from the sound emerged the second element, Air in the form of wind.
