2013 SONIC SKATE PLAZA. SOLID INTERFACES WORKSHOP MEDIALAB PRADO MADRID, SPA
The Sonic Skate Project is an intervention in public space where the location is molded into a scenario for a "skated orchestra". Through different sensors placed in the surface, obstacles and urban furniture, we turn these elements into a scenario; an interface, an interactive installation that generates real time visual and sound compositions from the activity of the skate, used as an instrument.
The initial project Sonic Skate Plaza was selected for its development in the context of the Solid Interfaces Workshop and Connecting Cities and the first prototype exhibited and performed live within this context at MediaLab Prado Madrid.
An advanced version of the piece, Sonic Sâo Paulo was adapted and projected on site to work autonomously during the SP Urban Festival at the Avenida Paulista in Sâo Paulo, Brazil.

What Urban Media Art Can Do: Why, When, Where, and How?
Ed: Connecting Cities (S. Pop, N. Calvillo, T. Toft, M. Wright)

Urban media art is one of the most significant trends currently unfolding in contemporary art. It enables artists to develop new participative and interactive forms of art. The wealth of examples in this volume show how these scenarios are reflected in an urban context, including themes such as urban activism, telepresence, placemaking, sensing and ecology.

The book is based on the cultural project "Connecting Cities" sponsored by the EU, which studies the effects of urban media art on urban culture and its environment, architecture and participative urban development. The aim is an expanding worldwide network of media facades, urban screens and projection surfaces within the urban space.
