Buskers carry a very mythical persona for me. They are unique characters that become part of the architecture and space. They transform these spaces into a stage-less podium that invites a temporal and sporadic way of experiencing their performances. There is an illusion created around them and their lives. While this illusion can easily be broken by seeing the moment when they transform themselves out to their character, this fragility develops an even more powerful beauty which highlights the ephemerality of their craft.

“Bosqueando” derives from the Spanish word ‘forest’ and is used as a verb in action: ‘to forest’. The word also suggests the term ‘busking’ which is performing in an ‘anti-stage’, such as a subway. Subways are often regarded as mystical landscapes in a subjective almost illusionary form. The purpose for this project is to travel to these sound spaces and merge with the existing life, exploring different cultures and observing their unique reactions to sound in different productions. “Bosequando” is a form of performance which helps bridge these surrealistic landscapes into our own perception of space.
