FAS en Repuesta 2008 FAS 08 – Feria de Arte Sonoro First Puerto Rican Sound Art Fair

There are only about 40 Puerto Rican (or Puerto Rico based) visual or plastic artists who dedicate themselves – non of them exclusively but many of them continuously – to producing sound art.

At the same time many local musicians have been declaring themselves sound artists, some of them since the 1980s. Both groups – that are by no means clearly divided as the FAS 08 has showed – have been and are trying to explore the world of sound beyond the usual, using body and voice, latest technologies and traditional instruments, natural and industrial sounds and much more as their palette.
