Since the entire conference was held online because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Irene Moon performed virtually using twitch and Zoom.

organized and exhibited at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, curated by Francisco López
Sound Experimentation 1980-2020
Although the opening is delayed, I am very excited to be invited to participate in an exhibition at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía curated by Francisco López. The exhibition includes works by 810 artists from 80 countries of the six continents and is focused on "highlighting the need and relevance of a social history –not again a mere chronology– of experimental audio."
Audiosphere. By way of a selection of hundreds of sound works, Audiosphere. Sound Experimentation 1980-2020 looks to cover an historical and cultural void in terms of the recognition, exhibition and analysis of a key part of the recent changes that have taken place in the artistic conception of sound.
By way of a selection of hundreds of sound works, Audiosphere. Sound Experimentation 1980-2020 looks to cover an historical and cultural void in terms of the recognition, exhibition and analysis of a key part of the recent changes that have taken place in the artistic conception of sound creation.
Conceived from a social perspective, and with the aim of revealing and providing context to reflect upon and discuss the techno-cultural changes that have occurred since the 1980s, the exhibition will present the work of a broad number of experimental sound artists, hailing from all over the world, the majority unknown to the contemporary art spectator.
The show will revolve around seven sections, each one addressing different social, technological, historical and cultural processes: genealogies, networks, mega accessibility, cyborgisation, aesthetogenesis, recombination and rights. Although such processes have been generated collectively and today are widespread, they have not been sufficiently identified, acknowledged or analysed artistically.
Audiosphere thus seeks to constitute a non-conceptual, large-scale contemporary art exhibition with no images or objects, underpinned solely by sound works and an exhibition design that facilitates experiential, profound and prolonged listening.
