D:PDSound BoxSound Box 1_SB Model (1)

Sound Box is an interactive installation that explores questions of notation
and representation of sonic atmospheres through an in situ graphic mapping
of sounds. A room within the exhibition room, Sound Box ‘performs’ a distinct
sound environment, out of the juxtaposition of pre-recorded sounds, and the
improvised interactions of users with the materiality of the Box’s structure.
The installation defines an ambient musical environment, which is conditioned
by the movement of the users on an interactive floor. This immersive sonic
atmosphere is recorded in realtime by a Drawing Device, which allocates and
relocates graphic matter upon a tensioned surface, through the resonance of
the live-fed sound environment. Like a reversed music box, Sound Box performs
the script of its ‘music’, out of the interaction of architectural elements,
musical sounds and the improvisations of users.

o ire – Professor Nick Fells

o ire = live audio for solo laptop with ambisonic surround sound. Field
recordings, old records, Dictaphone tapes and performance on a Sequential
Circuits Pro One synthesiser become audio data subjected to multiple
stages of dislocation and disruption temporally and spectrally. Sound data
are re-ordered and represented with spatial dynamics – inward/outward,
here/there, through and between. Through improvisation, performance
controllers imprint their data, activating, deactivating, sculpting and shaping
the sounds live as the piece unfolds.
