Gustavo Matamoros is a Miami based sound artist whose career spans over 30 years.
In 2009, ArtCenter commissioned him to create a public sound art installation he called Listening Gallery designed for the facade of it’s 800 building on Lincoln Road that ran nonstop from 2011 to 2015.
Other public sound art and collaborative commissions include Canal (with FM for Sleepless Night, 2010); Breezeway (an Art In State Buildings commission for FIU’s School of Architecture Paul Cejas Buildings by architect Bernard Schumi, 2004); and the monumental sound and video installation Cars & Fish (with filmmaker Charles Recher, commissioned by Miami Performing Arts Center for ArtBasel 2005).
His most recent research and development project at his ArtCenter Studio is Audiotheque 2.0 — a 2017 Knight Arts Challenge multichannel sound art installation and arguably the most important public Access project for the advancement of sound art in South Florida.
Aside from his work as an artist, Gustavo Matamoros is responsible for bringing to Miami over 200 such artists as John Cage, Pauline Oliveros, David Tudor, Alison Knowles, Kenneth Goldsmith, Jackson MacLow, John Giorno, Carles Santos, Derek Bailey, Steve Reich, Trimpin, Robert Ashley, Chris Mann, David Dunn and Tania León for important community interaction projects since 1989.
