Architectural SonarWorks

11 June - 17 June

A map is supposed to be seen, but can we listen to it? This is the goal of the Architectural Sonarworks project, which proposes an observation of the horizon like a musical score. What if the height of a building corresponds to the height of a note? Its surface would be the reverberation of that same note and its geographical altitude would create another sound. By cutting the city in two, we propose unique compositions for each territory according to its relief and architecture. The sounds vary according to the height of the architecture while the duration of the piece is proportional to the size of the city. Thus, when listening, you will be able to feel the atmosphere of an urban area through the sounds it generates. The city becomes a language.
