In between
 
00’46”, 2013
Sonic multi-channel site-specific installation for urban space (16 speakers)
Variable dimension
The project has been selected for the project “Vitrine Sonore”, curated by Philippe-Auber Gauthier at Sporobole Art Center, during the festival “Espace IM Média 2013” in Sherbrooke (CA). With the support of the project N’UP I session 2013, by MINISTERO PER I BENI E LE ATTIVITA’ CULTURALI and GAI – Associazione per il Circuito dei Giovani Artisti Italiani.

 

The sounds of Sporobole’s doors and windows (fissures, hinges, surfaces) have been recorded using an array of different microphones and techniques to capture a combination of both recognizable and abstract sounds. These sounds have then been composed alongside the use of silence, working on the idea of sonically translating the limen between private and public space.
“In Between” questions and re-imagines the relationship between private and public space, looking for intermediate acoustic spaces.
The result is a site-specific sonic atmosphere diffused on 16 speakers outside of the art center, to be possibly adapted to other spaces.
