Mario de Vega´s work explores the potential of fragility, ambiguity and contextual relations between objects, spaces and users.
His interventions, sound sculptures, documents and projects are framed in the context of the accident and distortion between a thin line of simulation and reality. Rules in which previous negotiations and agreements where solved. His projects are not strictly legal or illegal and some and sometimes are just produced for sound or photo documentation.
As sound improviser, his work is the result of unstable sound objects, the intensification of acoustic space with overlayering of sound information and the design - modification of electronic devices for sound improvisation.
Using turntables, circuit bent devices, analog electronics and custom software in different combinations, his improvisations are unpredictable situations caused by fragile objects and the potential of its failure.
