“Idiòfona” is a dialogue between man and matter during which a large sound installation is built in public space with the participation of the public. Unless you are musicians or have studied this subject, you may not know what an idiophone is. Idiophones are musical instruments that produce sound from vibration, but not from the vibrations of the strings, but from the whole body and matter of the object.

Based on this concept, and with the intention of putting together the ideas of community, material and space, Joan Català brings a proposal that invites a group of randomly chosen spectators to realize once in hand.

Idiòfona, it is the metal-poetic odyssey of a character with a marked iron destiny. A born search engine fleeing from an imposed path. 

“Idiòfona” is his betrayal of tradition, in order to forge a new one. His own.
