As a tribute to the Ars Acustica and its 20th anniversary, the authors-performers play rolling a virtual dice over board of a Parcheesi game, projected on the screen. Some squares have sound, some other are giving to performers instructions to make sound and visual actions or to launch complex pre-recorded mixes.
Iges and Jerez are revisiting documents of Sound Art and Radio Art which belongs to everyone. They are monuments, but in a sense have become ready-made, as they have become objects of functional use industrially reproduced by different media, including Radio. And of course they do an Ars Acustica tribute to its 20 years of age.
Among those documents you could find some well-known voices, excerpts of radio art works, some true and fake news, concrete sound effects like crashing glasses, cheap imitations of animals, laughter, whisperings, non-sense speaking... and adding to that sounds of live radio, sound actions, live texts etc.
