Carlos Antonio Piñón

Carlos Antonio Piñón is a Chicago-born artist and writer seeking to destroy the sentence. His work has been featured in several recycle bins throughout the city, most often with a better draft already in progress.

Carlos's biggest secret is that he has no idea how to write. Like no idea. He just kind of smashes the keys on his laptop hoping they form complete sentences. He wrote his last essay by throwing darts at a dictionary.

Aloud (Text/Voice/Process). 2016. Physical CD in a DVD case, including a perfect bound book.

Aloud (Text/Voice/Process)

Still wondering how spam emails sound like spoken aloud? Well...

Compositions on Aloud (Text/Voice/Process) are heavily research-based with text derived from other sources including mostly spam emails, as well as iPhone predictive text and more. This album contains several text-sound experiments recorded at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's whisper room.

The sophomore album, a direct successor to the 2014 album Text/Sound/Transmission, explores further into world of spam emails by including correspondences between real people and online solicitors.

Featuring vocals from Hadley Banozac, Matt Curro, and Carlos Antonio Piñón.

Album includes one CD with nine tracks and a perfect bound book with scores for each composition.

Aloud (Text/Voice/Process) was originally recorded in Mark Booth's 2016 class under the same name.
