Kelman Duran is a Dominican producer, composer and visual artist known for his expansive soundscapes and dembow and reggaeton infusions.

Margarida Mendes — Co-curated with Semibreve

Margarida Mendes’s research explores the overlap between infrastructure, ecology, experimental film, and sound practices, investigating environmental transformations and their impact on societal structures and cultural production.

She is interested in exploring alternative modes of education and political resilience through her curatorial practice and activism.

TUTTO QUESTO SENTIRE (TQS) is an artist collective started in 2014 by experimental soprano Olivia Salvadori, composer and cellist Sandro Mussida, and video artist Rebecca Salvadori.
TUTTO QUESTO SENTIRE constructs a system of experiences that unfolds generatively through residency projects, events, films, and publications that delve into the relationships between different sound traditions, the perception of time, and the environment.

On the occasion of Terraforma Exo, TQS has developed Landscapes as a live performance that also becomes a site-specific installation designed for the spaces of Triennale Milano. The installation houses the performance, serving as both a preparation and anticipation for the act — an open worksite that simultaneously constructs and documents the collective’s practice and collaborative approach.

TQS is co-curated with Semibreve.
