The Canary Islands, Islas Canarias in Spanish, are an archipelago consisting of eight populated islands and located ca 100 km west of mainland North Africa. Concha Jerez and José Iges, Madrid-based radio artists, have initiated the project “Islas Resonantes – Resonant Islands”, for which they invited other artists to visit one island each and produce sonic explorations of them.
The project is well-documented with weblogs, fotos and sound files at islasresonantes.com and was furthermore published as a book including two CDs with the sound pieces.
