Martin Espino

Mr. Espino, scholar, touring performing artist, lecturer and teaching artist of the instruments of Ancient Mexico since 1975, will present a series of soundscapes, collectively entitled “EK BALAM” (black jaguar) for the spirit, heart and mind. His extremely close relationship to the sounds’ origins, the instruments’ natural materials and the emotions evoked by them create a natural bond between man and sound.
These instruments produce naturally, a visceral, universal, reflective inducing sense. Martin will explore sonic emotions and awakened consciousness with his presentation, using what he calls “extended performance techniques” and electronic manipulation with Loop Station, EFX units and Laptop.

SoundWalk is on October 5th, 2013. RSVP on Facebook. This will be the 10th and final annual event.
