"Sergio Castrillón is a Colombian cellist who currently holds a doctorate at the University of Helsinki. His work specializes in graphic notation and sound improvisation, exploring "noise" and unconventional forms of musical improvisation. We have collaborated a couple of times mixing music and poetry in the elaboration of visual poems in graphic notation. At the beginning of August, he had the pleasure of designing and curatorial assistance for Sergio's sound exhibition at the Third Space gallery."
