The Exhibition Other Kinds of Sound Environment will present the projects: NewAtlantis, RoadMusic and Locus Sonus Stream Project. The event accompanying the exhibition offer’s free rides around the streets of Ljubljana in cars equipped with the RoadMusic application. The author will be present to answer your questions and the cars will be driven by local artists.
With RoadMusic (in-time, in-situ performance) the music played is generated by the car itself: vibrations of the car on the road, recognizable movements (accelerations, gear changes, bends etc.) and the passing landscape all participate to create a soundscape inside the car. RoadMusic remodels the audio-visual-tactile experience particular to driving a car, constructing a musical narrative as the route unfolds. In modern cars, the infotainment system has become the default audio source that replaces the soundscape from which we are hermetically sealed off. RoadMusic re-creates a link between the situation of driving and what we listen to, while maintaining the notion of musical composition.
Beside RoadMusic the exhibition will present two sound works that reflect the nature of sound space and are led by Peter Sinclair and his research unit Locus Sonus.
