Sonix Terris Tories


Even more often than rooms, thoughts change the sounds around us and in ourselves. Our body is a reservoir, a territory; it resonates every civilizational and natural sound produced, as well as the body’s own sounds. Sound needs space and creates it at the same time. Interiors resonate urban exterior sounds. The inner city spaces are played on surfaces of buildings [aluminum, marble, glass, sheet metal]. By means of a transducer, every limitation is made permeable.

Space becomes the membrane. Sound tells stories. In hearing, listening, harking. And what happens with sounds after they die away? How does silence “look” architecturally? How does an architect compose the sound of a town?

From surveys, to music, sound and space. From here on: listening off. We leave the genres, media, allocations. We take them only as entrance models. We go into the gap. And from here again, further.

[Bin-]Aural images, interactive listening exercises, city is soundscape, what is a “Prototype of Listening”?
