April 3, 2006. South Florida Arts Center, Miami Beach FL
The Subtropics Experimental Music & Sound Arts Festival is the brainchild of venezuelan sound artist and composer Gustavo Matamoros. Subtropics turns 20 this year and continues its mission to open our ears to new sounds. Headquartered again at Dorsch Gallery in Miami’s Wynwood District and hosted for a night by ArtCenter/South Florida and Miami Beach Cinematheque in Miami Beach, Subtropics will offer a daily dose of new and experimental music and sound works from an international collection of composers and performers. Subtropics is the largest and oldest festival of its kind in the region and one of South Florida’s true Cultural treasures.
ST-18, presented by SFCA’s interdisciplinary Sound Arts Workshop in partnership once again with the Miami Performing Arts Center, concentrates a wide array of events into a ten-day period, from February 23rd to March 3rd, 2005. At once a world-class exposition of new music and sound art and a venue for an exchange of ideas between local, national, and international artists, Subtropics creates a public dialogue along with engaging entertainment unique to Miami and most parts of the world.
