For his piece responding to the work of PiM.studio, mcconville takes elements from nature and digitally manipulates them to show a distorted version of acoustic sounds, while still leaving them recognisable and connected to their source, or to show digital approximations of natural sounds.  The piece aims to create a representation of space both inside and outside of the building at different times throughout the day.

Meditations on “Theatrum Mundi”, is a sonic response in 12 movements by Yuval Avital to Daniel Libeskind’s “Theatrum Mundi”, 1983, a series of 12 abstract works (paper, collage and paint on board) that give visual form to a premonition of the future as a city besieged by an unknown infection. The composition interprets the visual artworks as ‘mandalas’ and their titles as poetic vectors.

SOUND/SPACE/MEMORY/EXPERIENCE

MSCTY Explores new ways to experience the world through sound and space. MSCTY Creates collaboration between physical, tangible, imagined landscapes, and sonic [space is the] place; from this we seek new ways of reading the world around us. MSCTY Invites criticism; inquiry; openness; suggestion; community. MSCTY Believes that the only boundaries [the only barriers] are dogmatic constructs to be broken down! MSCTY Believes that the quality of sound environments is as critical as quality air to breathe. No less than the Phuture of Sound is at stake: 5, 8, 6, we are MSCTY!
