Raúl Romero: Onomonopoetics Reception

October 10 @ 4:00 pm 6:00 pm

Raúl Romero: Onomonopoetics of a Puerto Rican Landscape explores how Puerto Ricans in Philadelphia connect back to the island through sound. In the soundscape, Romero brings the sound iconic coquí, a native frog to El Centro de Oro. Hearing el coquí will evoke memories for many and introduce the soundscape from Puerto Rico to those unfamiliar. Sculptures referencing the world-famous observatory in Arecibo, PR, will serve as the central station collecting and transmitting sounds. At the reception, there will be music by Johnny Cruz.
