The Estampa fair celebrates its 30th anniversary from October 13 to 16 in Hall 5 of the IFEMA MADRID fairgrounds. A commemorative edition with the participation of more than 100 contemporary art galleries, with works by nearly a thousand national and international artists.

On the other hand, Jordi Teixidor and José María Yturralde, as guest artists, present individual works specifically made for the fair and whose theme focuses on their relationship with music and sound. This commemorative program of the 30th anniversary of Estampa is established from the analysis and study of the references, interests, influences and acoustic, scientific and musical contributions that the composer and musicologist Miguel Álvarez Fernández makes on the work of guest artists, to gather their results in a commemorative album with all the documentation that arose from the studio and an edition of these sounds on a limited edition vinyl disc for collectors.
