Description: “Abyecto,” meaning heinous, hideous, or even abject, is the name of a piece that ironically has none of those attributes. Designed and fabricated at FIU as a collaboration between students and faculty members in architecture and music to be a membrane that accommodates two newly designed guitars that sport single strings and other innovations, the piece seems to be more about an integrated visual voluptuousness that we might imagine to dissolve into distopic fragments of sound, skin, and senses.
