  • Instrumentation: 24-channel fixed medium

The piece uses sounds of a grand piano with different forms of digital transformations. The title can either be thought of as an “exploding” piano where the different sounds work like particles flying off in different directions or it can be thought of as an enlargement of the body of the piano (as in the photographic sense) letting the instrument be exposed in a over dimensioned fashion.

BlowUp is a sound installation realized in 2010 for the Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo (MuAC) in Mexico City (Mexico).
