This work was developed throughout the annual Sound Art
course at Morley College.
This project analyses an hypothetical Graphic Score designed
for an excerpt (60 seconds) of Iannis Xenakis and Edgar
Varèse’s piece ‘Poème électronique’ written for the Philips
Pavilion at the 1958 Brussels World’s Fair.
By exploring a third dimension on this abstract 2D notation.
SonuScape proposes the creation of interplay; associating specific
sound extracts from the Xanakis & Varese piece broadcast
in ‘realtime’, with corresponding sculptural elements.
The result is an interactive sonic scape.
Stratum is an integral sculpture of light, sound and architecture
that aims to engage you as a listener and acknowledge
music exploring this futuristic allure – as an art of layering
a whole composition. The translucent skin of the sheets
displayed in the room not only define a spatial path to walkthrough
but also provides an interface for a sound synchronized
play of lights introducing sound in a layered system. The
walls of this room will be covered in mirrors.
This set up performance invites the listener to an interplay
spatial experience, an acoustic resonance soundscape in a
continuum space. the main goal is to create an intimate and
introspective sonic experience to oneself
This project was introduced in a small scale format in the
supplied installation space at Morley Gallery.
