2000. Audio installation. 

Comissioned by XXI Festival Encontre Internacional de Compositors (Palma de Mallorca), Fundació ACA.

As in other works of the series Redes/Cubiertas, S'Ubac is also based on a documentary work and in the personal memories of the inhabitants of Sa Pobla that Claudio Zulian developed during the first months of 2000. From this research was born the definitive hypothesis of the installation, which from the meetings and the already realized works, was based on the work of the peasants and the dizzy modernization of the village. Special attention was paid to the working songs, that are still remembered in Sa Pobla.
Once recollected and selected the material, Claudio Zulian made a study sound editing. This sound editing was spread by loudspeakers hidden between the trees and the undergrowth in Crestatx's forest during a few days. The forest is the goal of the annual pilgrimage that the inhabitants of Sa Pobla do for Easter and the emplacement of the installation wanted to underline this quality of " sacred place " tying it, nevertheless, to the daily thing.
