Review of the book "Arte sonoro: una indisciplina" by José Iges by Italian sound poet Enzo Minarelli
May 6, 2023
A very disciplined undiscipline
The author (José Iges) is the classic right man in the right place, he directed the Ars Sonora programme with Francisco Felipe for Radio Nacional Dos of Spain from 1985 until 2008, and it was in this guise that I first met him when in 1992 he commissioned me a work to broadcast in the Ciudades Invisibles programme (dedicated to Italo Calvino), a poem that I premiered in the building of the local Italian Cultural Institute in Madrid. He is not only an inveterate populariser but also an established artist, signing works of Sound Art in duo with Concha Jerez or as a soloist. All this to reiterate that he has seen Sound Art, “Arte Sonoro” in Spanish, grow. It is true that the term had already been hovering in the air since the 1960s, I am thinking of Cage or Pierre Schaeffer, but it is equally true that it was only the crucial transition between the analogue and digital eras, let's say roughly in the 1980s, that sanctioned its indisputable affirmation.VIEW MORE
