in the frame of: augmented spatiality
30th august — 5th september
O+A (Bruce Odland and Sam Auinger) are using a special resonating tube for their sound installations. The “tuning tube” is placed at a selected spot within the urban sound environment and responds to the surrounding sonic input by creating an overtone series through sympathetic resonance. Harmonic intervals are emphasized while background noise is suppressed. Despite their musical transformation, distinctive sounds and noises characteristic of the urban environment remain recognisable – emergency vehicle sirens, the deep throb of trucks, dogs barking and human voices – all retain their unmistakable character.
