Audivisual Installation and VR experience
Based on the famous description of the Cosmos that the Greek Philosopher narrates on The Timaeus, this new experience combines electroacoustic music and 3D spatial sound to immerse the viewer. On the installation for multichannel ambisonics system, one can hear the composition from above, from an objective perspective, as the artist that composed it would usually hear it. Once immersed in Plato´s virtual Cosmos the composition takes new outcomes each time is explored.

(sounding bodies) Performance
Corps Sonores is a performance piece that explores the connection between one’s voice and one’s physical being. The sonic material used for this performance features a rich tapestry of voices — intimate interviews with real people — whose words were recorded, classified and sonically treated. These voices are then played through a bespoke construction ; an interface that has been hand sewn into a unique garment created by Berlin-based New York fashion designer Anna Hieronymus. Creative producer Rodger Brown filmed each of the interviews in turn, and has added his own visual counterpoint to accompany and enrich the final performance.

(Installation with performer)
Thinking of sound as a phenomenon possibly found in different media and objects, possibly interacting with various parts of a brain, the installation space contains some of the so called “Sonic Illustrations” in their materiality of the 8th and 9th of june.
June 8+9 | 2–8 pm
Vestige is a site-specific sound installation located within a big industrial building in the old restricted area of Berlin-Alt-Hohenschönhausen, now used as spaces for artists. The sound installation is located in one of the four industrial stairs which is closed just for the piece (entrance in the ground floor). Using the sound echoes as a mean to perceive spatial information, exploring the psychological and physiological responses associated with the echoes, orienting the experience towards the ability to locate with the sound reflection from the surfaces.
June 7–9 | 3–8 pm
painting and sound installation
“Still Life ” is an installation comprised of five oil paintings and a surround sound composition, that seeks to stress the temporal qualities inherent to such contrasting mediums : the staticity of painting against
the dynamism of sound.
This work is inspired in the classic painting genre “still life” which consists in depicting ordinary inanimate objects, lying on a table and usually against an empty background ; it can be said that the subject matter in such paintings is the fall of the light upon surfaces, but also the angle of the light that comes as a time of the day, and thus an image not only about objects but ultimately about moments.
