Sonic Architecture

A series of 4 studies that explore artistically various ideas of 'sound as space'.

Artificial environments can make available to us experiences and perceptual abstractions that would not otherwise be available. These other realities result from principles of collaborative world-making and communication, where new uses of language, space, and time are required. Definitions and interpretations of space and spatiality are essentially for how we construct the world and by extent how we create means to intervene into that world in our day-to-day practices. Moreover, spatial thinking is one of our most deeply embedded cognitive capacities. Reasoning about spatial relationships is fundamental to human intelligence and spatial perception is tightly integrated with both thought and action. Sound and space converse by multiplying and expanding the point of attention or the source of a sound: the materiality of a given space shapes the contours of sound, moulding it according to reflection and absorption, reverberation and diffraction. -
