Gustavo Matamoros’s Listening Club Part 4: Supersonic Tales of Sound and Speed

Monday, June 27, 7 PM | LIVE & IN-PERSON at Books & Books, Coral Gables


This event is part of a special four-part series presented by the Subtropics Organization and the City of Coral Gables at Books & Books.

About Episode 4:

With the advent of recorded sound, we are now able to speed up or slow it down. Composers today use digital tools to explore the nature of sound the way biologists use a microscope to discover and study marvelously tiny worlds.

The listening playlist in this final episode of the Listening Club makes us aware of the richness of content in sound relative to speed. It seeks to show aspects of sound often difficult to discern with our naked ears.

About the Listening Club series:

Created by Gustavo Matamoros, the Listening Club is a series of listening experiences curated for the stimulation of the sound mind: the mind with which we listen. The 2022 season is in four parts and makes its Coral Gables debut in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Books and Books.
