installed 'perspectives' at Oxford Brookes the other day, as part of the MA's sonic art module
microphones, speakers, mixing-board and electronics
Oxford Brookes University, 12.12.2011
'perspectives' uses a combination of acoustic and mixing-board feedback. Sound is fed from the microphones to the mixing-board, where it is routed towards an internal loop, as well as the speakers. The internal loop is also routed to the speakers, creating this way a complex set of interactions between external (acoustic) and internal (electronic) feedback. The aim of this work is to amplify the sounds present in the space (either those coming from inside or near the chosen room, or from people knowingly or unknowingly participating), and to heighten the awareness of the particular environment.
