Acousmatic Clean Space
Mathias Durand & Julia Stern
Curated by Jaya Ramchandani
Venue: Fundação Oriente
Time: 10:30 – 20:00
Julia and Mathias present a sound installation of acousmatic music, inviting the participants to an experiment in emergent knowledge, and is aimed at supporting personal, philosophical or poetical questioning. They will propose different kinds of guided explorations through the sound building links between the space, sounds and the metaphorical universe of the participant.
The participants are invited to explore the installation, as they will walk in the space and thus discover sounds coming from different objects or materials of their surrounding. Among the acousmatic tracks reviving the memory of the space with sounds, some voices invite the participants to link personal memories, thoughts or feelings with their actual perception of the space. Accordingly, the creative associations established between the inner space and the surrounding space inspire emergent knowledge and new perspectives.
Julia is a sound and visual artist, composer of acousmatic music and therapist in Ericksonian hypnosis and clean language.
