‘Laberinto Sonoro’ was an event conceptualized by Sun Cok (Medios Nomades) and Sajjra Chrs Galarreta (Aloardi). Sun Cok and Galarreta devised the event as a composition in itself. After summoning other artists who help a lot in the production and promotion of the event, especially Angie Bonino. In 2003 Aloardi published a CD-Rom titled «Laberinto Sonoro» (Alo 015) with interactive content in which you can listen to the audio documentation of the event and see video and photo records.
