Janet Cardiff:
The Forty Part Motet
“the audience to be able to experience a piece of music from the viewpoint of the singers”
-By including the initial banter and coughing fits of the choristers, Cardiff lets us in on the transformation that the singers make from ordinary, frail people into vessels of harmonious noise.
-different sounds from each speaker
-speakers are located around the audience
-groups of speakers
-music move from right to the left
Does the headphones-each person listen to sound recording individually?
the action of forced to listen
-place installation outside and likewise infers the combination and indefinite of recorded vs live sound.
busy street corner or just outside.

Study of Strings

– a contemporary interpretation of an eponymous 1943 orchestral work by Pavel Haas, who composed the score in a concentration camp.
-isolated only the viola and cello parts
-recorded onto multiple channels
-replete with fraught silence to show the absence of the musicians who played the instruments
Pipilotti Rist
Sip My Ocean
-creating a new safe and new environment for the viewer to enter.

Project Statement

Our project concerning the present and “being in time with the city of Paris” will infer a sound installation. This will infer the auditory sense and imagination. We are currently individually recording sounds around Paris that reflect each of our environment. We intend to record background noises that we commonly disregard and evoke the listener to reflect on elements of life we take for granted. Inspiration from Pipilotti Rist will infer in terms of the environments she creates for her installations. We likewise want to create a divergent and comfortable environment. The difference in the audio will be a factor of time and its passing. Subsequent, we will collaboratively listen to our individual recordings and make a selection and also consider the order of the recordings. We may use several speakers for our installation around the audience or create compositions of similar sounds from each speaker. Research conducted to enhance our work will infer art research on other sound artists and experimental research.




First Prototype and Process

-2 prototype one by each.
-consider these being played at the same time with distance apart,
hence the perception each viewer has is different and unique.
Feedback from Prototype critique:
-mixed reality experience
-consider the even larger gap between speakers
-more closed off space/corner to keep the attention span of viewers.
-threshold on how far you can push perception.
