Sonic Interventions 
Owned by Others, Berlin 2020

Sonora investigates the soundscapes of the Museum island in Berlin by mapping the traveling memories of musicians whose music resonates in the corners, pathways, bridges and corridors of the Island. The musicians form part of a complex constellation of musical genealogy and journeys of migration. Miguel continues to examine these soundscapes by drawing the disparities between tourists, business people, ‘locals’ and ‘others’.

Sonic Interventions    
Owned by Others, Berlin 2021

In an attempt to counteract the impersonal presentations of Museum Island given by its institutions, artist Miguel Buenrostro has brought together different musicians that earn a living playing music for visitors, locals and workers in the streets of Museum Island. Normally a touristic zone characterised by anonymous encounters and communicative neglect, the Museum Island is set up as a stage for new, meaningful encounters.
