The making of a historiographical sculpture: an onstage documental exhibition of CCADDASM
Encounter with Rolando Hérnandez

The making of a historiographical sculpture: an onstage documental exhibition of CCADDASM (Centro de Creación, Archivo y Difusión de Documentos de Arte Sonoro en México) will take as main characters some of the documents this institution has created/gathered through the last 4 years. This onstage documental exhibition will talk about some of the conceptual tools used to analyse and create an alternate historiography. In the hour and 30 minutes of duration we will see the different events/manifestations of sound practices that can take us back and forth from the XVIth Century to the XXIst Century in a nonlinear trip.

Rolando Hernández’s practice takes different tools from archive research, curatorship, writing, composition and art production. Since 2013 he is co-director and co-curator of Umbral, a project space and festival which gathers practices interested in sound experimentation. Since 2015 he runs the artistic institution CCADDASM (Centro de Creación Archivo y Difusión de Documentos de Arte Sonoro en México) which has created different projects to create an alternate historiography of sound practices in Mexico. As a composer, his work Topializ was studied for the PHD thesis “Componer la duración de la experiencia musical” from Santiago Astaburuaga and published by Marginal Frequency. He has been awarded with the first latinoamerican residency Tsonami Arte Sonoro/Casaplan for his criticised project Basuraleza Muerta Viva. He also received a merit scholarship to assist to the Curatorial Intensive of ICI (Independent Curators International) in Alumnos47 (MX City). His work has been published and presented at places, presses and labels like: Gauss PDF, Caduc, Theme Park for Ear, Impulsive Habitat, Tsonami Arte Sonoro, Festival CuatroXCuatro, Labor Sonor, FotoPhono, Fonoteca Nacional, Cha`ak`abb Paaxil/Multiple Tap, among others.
