José Rivera

José Rivera (aka Proxemia) creates electroacoustic music and experimental sound works that explore the intersections of aural and spatial experience. His practice is primarily expressed through multi­channel installation and performance, sound design, location recording, cartography, and architectural design. Recent projects have been exhibited at the ICA Boston (Leap Before You Look: Black Mountain College 1933–1957), MIT’s MediaLab and List Visual Art Center, and Le Laboratoire in Cambridge. Along with numerous collaborations, his fluid body of work also includes an open­-air performance space for a youth dance and drumming group in rural Ghana. His current work examines resonance, transmission, meteorological phenomena, weather mapping, electromagnetic signals, and the history of RADAR technologies.
