Acoustic Landscaping in Time and Space
Thu, March 07, 2019 6 pm CET, Performance

»An Urban Archive as an English Garden« is an installative performance. Sounds are presented within a walk-in grid of loudspeakers.

The loudspeakers are used to play back field-recordings recorded at different times at the same location. They can be located in space by phase-based pans, which realistically represent the recorded position of the sounds. Occasionally a performer enters this topography and competes against it, »naming« places of interest and creating connections across space and time. The participants move between and around the loudspeakers and the performer. They take control of their own experiences by investigating the acoustic properties of the space itself and experiencing sound as an object in space.

Please note: The performance will take place in English.
