Sound of ruins (new cities future ruins) is a multi-shaped installation mixing mapping
on volume and sound, more precisely sonic cartography. The project seeks to find what
are the sounds of ruins, defining the city as a field of artistic exploration and use
sound to activate the public space. Staging the urban ruin, the installation questions
the spatial memories and as well imagining the future and its sonic experience,
connecting to, and reviving alternative times and places latent within a particular
environment. I look for a way to create an immersive landscape through the sounds
out of place and mapping into a geographical imagination, quoting Cohen I would
like the listeners upon to “locate themselves in different imaginary geographies”. In
this case a dystopian stage questioning and denoting the real world and our future in
a time of crisis and of hybridity. Hybridity which lends into the sensory registers of
sound itself, and diverse cultural and historical contexts that can be used for this
interrogation of the realities of the future ruins.
I think that my project could be an interesting add to your exhibition since its base its about the reality of space, or not, and about spatial memories of an imaginary land(sound)scape, that goes into a geographical imagination.
