Study for 2 resonant spaces
Acoustics is as integral to our experience of space as light and shape. This study examines what happens if the viewers perception of acoustics is willfully disrupted and becomes part of the material for music. A composition by Hjálmarsson is performed in two separate locations which are edited into a continuous performance, the timbre of the instruments and spaces are part of the music and the piece only exists as this edited recording. The locations are churches because they are the oldest architectural spaces in iceland where acoustics are relevant.
