Patiño | Sn50 #2 | Gang Of Ducks: XIII, Sabla


Rubén Patiño is an artist working in the field of Electronic Music and Art. He is focused on the sculptural properties of synthetic sound while exploring the limits of concert, public event and installation. All his works tent to contain different strategies regarding space and formats of presentation while combining sound, lights, text, image or found materials with elements of early electronic music, ideograms and 20th Century art movements. Since 2013 he has been involved in N.M.O. A rolling computerized ceremonial aerobics unit that together with percussionist Morten J.Olsen. operates in a hybrid territory between club music, performance and inventive forms of sound spatialisation. This is what they call ‘Military Danceable Space Music and/or Fluxus Techno’. Rubén Patiño has also collaborated with Arnau Sala aka Exoteric Continent and with Roc Jiménez de Cisneros as in Super-boredom. A series of multi-channel audio pieces that uses an extremely rigid temporal structure.

Sn50 is the new editorial project of Gang of Ducks.
For each issue a different artist is invited to develop a theme of his/her own choice, using self-made contents or found ones. Subsequently, Gang of Ducks frames the materials by designing the publication, adding one more creative layer to that same theme.
This process enables a workflow of pure brainstorming between the artist and the collective, resulting in a mesh of ideas and visions.
The second issue of Sn50, printed in a limited edition, is curated by Rubén Patiño.
