The Subtropics Festival is a biennial of music and sound art founded by Gustavo Matamoros—who runs The Audiotheque @ ArtCenter in Studio #201. The Audiotheque is an intimate space that hosts concerts, listening events for the general public as well as residencies with artists for the development of new work in music and sound art.
SFCA [isaw+subtropics] is the leading proponent of experimental music and sound art in the Southeast, and the nourishing platform for projects like Audiotheque, the Subtropics Biennial and yearly Marathon, the Frozen Music Ensemble, iSAW’s Experimental Sound Archive and Sound Studio, and many more projects designed to produce, promote and present the newest, most on-topic new music and sound art experiences in South Florida.
This year’s biennial is presented by SFCA [isaw+subtropics] in collaboration with ArtCenter/South Florida. Other partners include, Asociación de Música Electroacústica y Arte Sonoro de España (AMEE), Miami Beach Cinematheque, Filmmakers Showcase, and Obsolete Media Miami (OMM).
