stone:speeches (2014) belongs to the cycle of installations material:speeches. This cycle started with the sound installation steel:speeches, a work in collaboration with the acclaimed British sculptor Rob Olins that was exhibited at the Royal British Society of Sculptors in 2013.
For this occasion, the composer and video-creator Raquel García-Tomás has devised an audio-visual installation composed of seven brief speeches which main thread runs through a hidden textual material that could only be seen time to time along the work. From these latent texts, the only information revealed is their punctuation; the rest is represented through a systematized alphabet formed by sounds. Eventually, in the parts 4 and 6, we can listen to soprano Maria Hinojosa pronouncing some words from the veiled texts.

Para esta ocasión, la compositora y vídeo-creadora Raquel García-Tomás ha concebido una instalación audiovisual compuesta por siete breves discursos -o speeches- en los que el hilo conductor es un material textual oculto que sólo se deja entrever muy de vez en cuando a lo largo de la obra. De los textos latentes, sólo se nos llega a revelar los signos de puntuación que los componen; el resto se representa mediante un abecedario sistematizado a base de sonidos. Eventualmente, en las partes 4 y 6, podemos escuchar a la soprano María Hinojosa pronunciar algunas palabras de los textos velados.
