Abstract [en]

Espèces d’Espaces is an artistic research project funded by Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts & Design. 

Its overall focus is the experience of sonic spaces, the intimate relation between body, surrounding space and its exclusive sonic expression. With a practice-based approach, this project pays specific attention to physic acoustics auralisation methods and tools (3D virtual sonic modelling) with an aim to explore in particular how can these processes be transposed to the realm of artistic research. 

As a part of this project, I shared a case study based on a specific space and construction: a XVIIth century cloister preserved today as a central element of the extension of Museo del Prado in Madrid as planned by architect Rafael Moneo in the early 2000s. 

This case study starts thus in the realm of traditional architectural acoustics, for later performing a series of experiments in the form of spatial and temporal variations and displacements. Experiments based on a number of artistic architectural (alternative realities of a space) and sonic/musical practices including improvisation or electroacoustic composition.

Abstract [en]

Jardin de Délices is born from the acoustic space of the Jerónimos' Cloister in Madrid, today's a part of Prado Museum. This space has been acoustically measured, graphically modeled and finally auralised.

The study has been interested not only in its present form, but also in its historical configuration as a monastic cloister, as well as in other possible imaginary variations of its state and sound diffusion characteristics (e.g. surfaces covered by an absorbent material, or by a green wall, etc.). The listening points have also been multiplied in terms of distance, location and directionality with the aim of describing the sound qualities of this unique space in terms of transparency and depth.

These aural responses and multiple realities have then been applied to a series of acoustic (studio-recorded) and electronic (algorithmically synthesized ) audio materials able to sensorially portray their diffusion spaces. The result is a sonic fresco in three parts that aims at testing and expanding our everyday experience of sonic spaces by confronting acoustic realities that are not always compatible or even physically possible.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a series of contemporary artistic methods and collective actions based on the pioneering work of the French avantgarde group Art et action (Aea, 1919-1939). Aea actively responded to the fast-changing society of their time through their innovative “theatre laboratory”, an experimental artistic research environment in which actors and audience were invited to investigate together the rhythmic order of urban routines and rituals, through the re-enactment of daily urban atmospheres. Based on Aea’s methods and concepts, atelier Area aims at responding to today’s deep physical, sensorial and social transformation of the city by re-acting contemporary urban routines and rituals through public improvisations and interventions. Three concrete examples will be presented here.

Abstract [en]

In collaboration with Volvo Cars, we presented a novel design tool to a large public of approximately three million people at the three leading motor shows in 2017 in Geneva, Shanghai and New York. The purpose of the tool was to explore the relevance of interactive audio-visual strategies for supporting the development of sound environments in fu- ture silent cars, i.e., a customised sonic identity that would alter the sonic ambience for the driver and by-passers. This new tool should be able to efficiently collect non-experts’ sonic preferences for different given contexts. The design process should allow for a high-level control of complex synthesised sounds. The audience interacted individually using a single-touch selection of colour from five palettes and applying it by pointing to areas in a colour-book painting showing a road scene. Each palette corresponded to a sound, and the colour nuance in the palette corresponded to certain tweaking of the sound. In effect, the user se- lected and altered each sound, added it to the composition, and finally would hear a mix of layered sounds based on the colouring of the scene. The installation involved large touch screens with high quality headphones. In the study presented here, we examine differences in sound preferences between two audiences and a control group, and eval- uate the feasibility of the tool based on the sound designs that emerged.

Abstract [en]

In the context of extended reality, the term immersion is commonly used as a property denoting to which extent a technology can deliver an illusion of reality while occluding the users’ sensory access to the physical environment. In this paper we discuss an alternative interpretation of immersion, used in the My Sound Space project. The project is a research endeavor aiming to develop a sound environment system that enables a personalized sound space suitable for individual work places. The medium, which in our case is sound, is transparent and thus becomes an entangled part of the surrounding environment. This type of immersion is only partly occluding the users sensory access to physical reality. The purpose of using the sound space is not to become immersed by the sounds, rather to use the sounds to direct cognitive attention to get immersed in another cognitive activity.
