One of the principles of the acoustic treatment of the Space for Experiments in Sound is to minimize the reverberation caused by the work performed here; that is, for the sounds that comprise the artwork to reach the ears of visitors to the space in as pure a form as possible. The aim to avoid the sounds being distorted by bouncing off the walls, floor and ceiling and losing the original clarity intended by the artists and composers.

The result of the information obtained through modal analysis allowed him to identify specific frequencies and intervene in the space in such a way that its characteristics emphasize these qualities. Thus, Sono_orography is a reactive installation that responds to the movement of the visitor and to the behavior of sound within the space itself. The work (re)traces a kind of orographic cartography that responds to the information about the visitor that is gathered by sensors, which choose and create new sound landscapes.
