    Synopsis Promenade is a site specific sound installation that proposes a public space musical occupation with performance procedures. Concept First of all, the artist search one street in the city with specific physical and social aspects to create his installation: the street must be narrow, and its inhabitants must be, somehow, receptive to an artistic intervention. This urban research is made by systematic bike rides through the streets, and it is based in the situationist concept of derive. In this phase, the artist will be aware of the physical, acoustic and social aspects of the space. Once found, 12 apartments of thechosen street will receive an audio track, each one containing a different layer of one musical composition. The inhabitants will be asked to play the tracks in the same day, at the same time, with their own sound system placed in their windows and pointed toward the street. The idea is to use only the equipment found in the apartments, in order to establish a radical site specific relation with the space. A readymade gear that will enrich the sound results with different sound characteristics: every apartment will display its sound layer with a different sound system. In this sense, the negotiation with the inhabitants is an essential part of the creative process, as it not only defines how the urban intervention will transform their relations with and in the public space, but also will establish a commitment. A deep dive into the privacy and the intimate space of some people, that will lead to public space experience. Sound The position of each listening point will be made respecting an acoustic concept considering mixing frequencies, spatial composition and distance. In this context, to listen to all tracks, one must walk through the street and perceive the changes in the sound textures while moving. In this sense, evolved by music like in a movie, the interactor experiences the same street he is used to pass everyday in a completely different way. By walking through it, he is surprised by radical change in its soundscape, an oneiric experience that lead him to another perception of that space and that moment. This synesthetic experience not only enables new emotional reactions, but also different memories and affective relations with that street. A contemplative state of mind that enables a new way of perceiving the space. Key words :: sound art, urban intervention, public space, site specific, context awareness, spatial mixing, human exchange, negotiation, space based music composition This installation has been presented in three different occasions, in Cadiz as a result of the residency program Linea De Costa in 2014, in São Paulo at the event Virada Cultural 2013, and in Paris for the exhibition 'Si ma rue était...' in 2013 Paris_rue Gustave Goublier In Paris, the installation was presented in the street Gustave Goublier. The mixing and the spatialization were performed in middle of the street, considering the nature of the sound of the different tracks, the quality of the sound system and the position of the windows (floor and building). In this context, high frequencies smooth sounds were placed in higher windows, while low percussive sounds and the theme in piano were placed in ground floor windows. The result is an acoustic creation conceived specificly for that street with all its physical and cultural aspects. São Paulo_rua Augusta In São Paulo, the installation was presented in the street Augusta, a very famous and tradicional street in the central area. As the street had not high buildings, the speakers were placed in the ground floor, and the mixing and spatialization were designed according to the position of each speaker in the street. The ambient conditions were totally different: while in Paris we were working in a pedestrian street with 6 floor buildings in both sides, in São Paulo we were in a busy and noisy commercial street with cars, buses and motocycles all the time. In this context, the interference of the installation was completely different even though in both cases it had pointed countless aspects of the public space that were not seen to the inhabitants and the passers. While in Paris the installation provoked an integration of the neighbors of different cultures, in São Paulo people started to get more concerned about structural and urbanist problems of the street.

        I'm pleased to present a six minute film titled “Big Bend–The Scale of Time.” This is a short preview for my upcoming reflective landscape film about Big Bend National Park. I am in the process of re-shooting footage in high definition to entirely update and replace the imagery from an older film, while retaining the music track and eventually the incidental poetic script and narration elements. This HD film is hosted on Vimeo and is best seen full-screen. The cinematography and photography in this short version all come from a brief three-day visit to the park in June, 2014. I plan to return at least twice in the coming months (for longer stays) and obtain much more footage to fill out the main feature. What imagery will I get on my next trip? In June, I didn't expect to get caught in that dramatic lightning storm or see a cloudy, no-sunrise morning suddenly erupt into an amazing spotlit fan of golden light. Big Bend always surprises me with unexpected scenes of wild and gentle beauty that translate so very well into visual art. I hope you enjoy my film. A note about the music: This is my original composition and performance excerpted from the longer film. It won the Calypso Award from the Moondance International Film Festival in 2006, and also a prestigious Silver Telly Award in that same year. David P. Crews – www.CrewsCreative.com

                  I was fortunate enough to work with some great filmmakers who where kind enough to share their work with me (thank you all); so, I could show you how much fun I have had since I turned actor--only one year ago, this month! Thanks to all who helped me, especially my wonderful acting coach, CK McFarland and my wife, Allene Evans, who not only patiently indulges this crazy passion but supports me in pursuing it. Enjoy.
