The main difference between music and sculpture
is the temporal aspect of each discipline.
In the former, time is revealed by the artist; in the latter,
time is revealed by the audience.
Manuel Rocha Iturbide is a Mexican composer known for exploring our acoustic environment, transformed into music, electronic compositions and sound installations
His research into soundscapes around the world has led him to be at the cutting edge of contemporary composition.
In El eco está en todas partes the composer presents his vision of electroacoustic composition through essays, specialist articles, sheet music, photographs, sketches, descriptions of pieces and installations as well as work created throughout his career.
The work also shows us a multidisciplinary artist capable of finding resonances and reverberations of his research in the context of daily life, which in turn enriches our perspective of today’s music.
The book opens with an interview by Guillermo Santamarina and contains a personalized glossary of over 40 musical and electroacoustic terms.
