Large scale installation projects include Trans, a work inspired & created for the Miami Public Transit system. A continuous ambient sound installation with the intent of aurally transporting the commuter experience while in motion. “I wanted to utilize the Miami Transit System as a canvas and a platform to connect communities and bring awareness to urban transportation methods” said Romaneiro.
Ricardo also works with film & live score projects. These projects include the premiere of Terrence Malick’s Voyage of Time performed by the Melbourne Symphony & Choir with Ricardo as a guest performer.
