Subtropics 2017, Miami's Experimental Biennial of Music and Sound Art
The 24th edition of Subtropics, the globally recognized experimental biennial of music and sound art, aims to ignite the lost art of listening with a summer festival featuring live concerts, sound art installations, workshops and films. Co-hosted by ArtCenter/South Florida, this year’s series will feature live performances from July 6-22 by internationally recognized artists including: Olivia Block, John Driscoll, Richard Garet, Barbara Held, Gustavo Matamoros, Abbey Rader and Jack Wright.

With the support of AC/E, Miguel Alvarez Fernandez and Victor Aguado Machuca from AMEE (the Association of Electroacoustic Music of Spain)
will present an overview of the historical evolution and the current status of electroacoustic music and sound art in Spain. From the pioneering figures of Juan Garcia Castillejo and Jose Val del Omar to the youngest generations, the works of different creators in tape music, soundscape, sound installation, performance, live electronics and sound poetry will be heard. 

The series of performances will once again culminate with the Subtropics Marathon concert on Saturday evening, July 22 (a non-stop session of multiple artists, 5 p.m. to midnight).
