Inspired by location, experience and memory and motivated by the inversion of the traditional roles of photography and sound in the media and art worlds, “Soundreaming” emphasizes the importance of the acoustic environment on our memory and perception of place. Soundscapes replace photography as the dominant documentary element at the core of the artistic practice. The visual representation is directly inspired by the audio documentation of the locations featured in the archive. Moreover, this technique allows for the transparency of environmental sound to shape the audience’s perception of the artwork and in turn, allows the visual component of the composition more freedom to express itself.

Soundreaming

Interactive presentation | co-artist: Ewa Doroszenko | 2014

Soundreaming is an interactive Internet presentation, that takes the form of an audio-visual archive of locations around Barcelona. This website documents our site-specific compositions and sound impressions. When traveling, most people take photographs and use them to communicate a sense of what the experience of being in that place might have been like. However, the acoustic environment can provide a tremendous amount of the sense of place and feeling of a location in a different way than photographs. In our artistic practice soundscapes replace photographs. Recording the dreams and both natural and human designed sounds during the expedition, we created sound compositions derived from this material. Sound installations are complemented with a unique electronic audio composition, mixed with sounds recorded in Barcelona and lo-fi music. Selected music track below.

The project has been produced in a framework of an Artist-in-Residence Program at Fundació AAVC Hangar in Barcelona, Spain, 2014.
