During his residency at MIS - Museo da Imagem e do Som in São Paulo, Mitjà created a series of works related to context. During his travels around the city he ended up eavesdropping. He then reproduced what he heard in the recording studio of the museum using items bought or found on the street. The result is a fictitious sound map made up of subtle isolated sensations, which go unnoticed in the huge urban agglomeration of one of the largest cities in the world.
