Title: Kids on Bike
Description: A bike ride allows for a deep soundscape from ice cream men serving over priced fudge bars to the constant sound of sirens chasing criminals and saving accident victims. A simple turning of the corner could lead to screeching tires heading at you. Sit at the bus stop a second and watch high end employees wait for their ride as $80,000 cars sit in their driveways unsure of the choice made in that purchase.

Hugo Paquete laptop sound experimentalist constructing the boundaries of sound and perception with the target of constructing sound experiments in relation with the architectural environment and spacial characteristics. Sound as art. Hugo Paquete has making a research in visual arts and sound installation, exploring the complex relation between the man and the Real and its paradigms of language, perception and technology. Its workmanships carry-in the ones for a language purified and synthesized codes with the objective to portray an aesthetic of mental landscapes, trying a conceptualist relation with the objects. Where from the logic we reach the abstraction. Sound art In general in the sound installation I explore a very minimalist process of representation in some of my work I don’t use any image support, because I want explore the creative power of the sound situation, which I construct for some exact spaces. Exploring with frequencies that are the visual representation of the sound and the waves that are the physic part of the sound constructing the physically and psychological art experience. With this visual emptiness I want manifest a resistance to the free image word of the contemporary media society, making a introspection that goes directly to the perceptive system headed for explore the imaginative dimension of the visual images, exploring the process when the receptor use is visual knowledge to appreciate the work and give a visual and sound suggestion to the represented concept. Following this process I Denney the image in some of my work and I tray raise an ambiance that is propitious to the reflexive process of thinking in the visual interpretation of the sound, is like experimenting a mystic situation of the mental labour. With the objective of demonstrating the multiplicity of interpretation and concepts in art. In my work I explore concepts that go from the reality to the abstractive elements from exploring their symbolic dimension and the form that we recognize them in there spatial and cognitive dimension. The importance of this research is the sound situations that I construct exploring concepts about perception and space knowledge and the boundaries about the human perception and art that are fundamental to the perceptive theories that are important to the understanding of the visual world that surround us with all the divergent information. My sound work is a contribution to the perceptive theories and to the organisation and understanding of the visual and sound phenomenology’s, exploring the human aesthetic, and the contemporary universes of the media.

Hugo Paquete is developing a exploration in the visual arts and sound installation, exploring the complex relation between the man and the Reality and there paradigms of language, perception and technology.
Since 2001 I have been working on an expanded concept of sound space and communication not only incorporating space according to its spatial characteristics in the narrow sense (acoustic, architectonic, sculptural, perspective, communicative and ambient).
Beyond this my installation works conceive of space in its site-specificity, usually existing in several layers: a social layer, the communicative between emission and reception, a situational layer exploring the concept of understanding of the reality and perception.
This concept of space is thus not limited to interior spaces and architectonic-formal relationships, a position which naturally also defines my working methods: only subjective, on-site research fields explore from concrete sound the understanding of that sounds out of the spatial contest.
In some installations I explore this concept with several sound speakers and players giving different sound signal to the space to construct a more complex situation according with the conceptual explanation of the communicative space interception and brain selective information.
Bulldozers in Dirt
An overly sentimental little ditty that we used in a film and radio piece some years ago (during the boom). The work described the inevitable demise of our Knowledge Economy. It seems only fitting that we say “We told you so” in some way, even if our own project is now defunct.
