Topology of two spaces
site specific sound intervention (2018)
Topology of two spaces is a sonic investigation of the architecture of two adjacent inner city yards in the University area of central Udine.
Two pulsating synthetic sounds are being played back in each yard, on different speaker sets. Each speaker set consists of one static loudspeaker and one ultrasonic (hyper-directional) speaker, mounted on a panning CCTV motor. The sounds emitted from the ultrasonic speakers will move around the yard in 3 dimensions and create a continously moving spacial modulation with the static sound – a sonic description of the physical space experienced as an aural moirée/doppler effect.
The speaker setup will be opposite in each yard, so the tonality will be radically different (“mirrored”) even though the audio elements are identical.
