AROMUSIC

01.06.22 01.07.22

AROMUSIC stems from MaryEllen Childs long background as a composer interested in combining music with other art forms- movement or projections or dance or imagery. For this installation at Proyecto ´ace, she was influenced by the sounds of the print lab (the grind of the printer motor, the whoosh of the rollers, the tackiness link) as wells the smells – of ink, paper and blankets. The resulting installation is a deconstruction of the print lab itself.

ABOUT AROMUSIC by MaryEllen Childs

Aroma-music stems from my long background as a composer interested in combining music with other art forms – movement or projections or dance or imagery. Most recently I have been combining music with smells. I often describe myself as “a composer interested in all the senses,” and underlying all these works is a deep curiosity about how our senses interact.

For my works including smells, my overarching aim is to foster a nuanced understanding of how smell affects history, imagination, memory, and perception. By pairing smell with music/sound I am exploring how these two senses interact. How does what we hear affect what we smell? How does what we smell affect how we hear? Both can evoke powerful emotions, vivid memories, and visceral responses. Both can influence how we inhabit our bodies and our history, and therefore are critical vehicles for cultural and personal connection.

For my installation at Proyecto ‘ace, I was influenced by the sounds of the print lab (the grind of the printer motor, the whoosh of the rollers, the tackiness of ink) as well as the smells — of ink, paper, blanket. The resulting installation is a deconstruction of the print lab itself.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
