SYMPHONY 24

 Interactive Sound Installation

This piece is planned as an interactive sound installation that manifests the malleability of time. The chronometric time is a mankind construction to normalize it and to work with it.

 

The artwork connects different places in the world with the site where is exhibited. Live audio from different cities in the world will be gathered and visitors will be able to interact by adding or subtracting sounds into a general symphony that will be unveiling itself on-site.

 

Accepting the parameters that govern the time zones, I intend to play with them and put into evidence, through their simultaneity, the relativity of time.

 

The audience walks around the space where 24 speakers are distributed, each reproducing the sounds of a city, each "a speaker" for one of the world's time zones. The amplifiers work with proximity sensors: when stimulated by the presence of people, they reproduce live audio from the city that is located at that geographical point. The artwork is in constant transformation and it won't replay itself twice in the same way, since it's subject to the intervention of visitors within the exhibition space they transit.

 

The space will be arranged into 24 virtual partitions, recreating the order in which time zones are actually set up around the globe. Each of the 24 cities has its own speaker, equipped with ultrasonic proximity sensors that, stimulated by somebody's immediacy, activate the live sound of the corresponding city.


24 sounds from 24 different places, live, brought about by movement. The symphony will vary depending on which sensors are activated.

 

The only reference about each of the places, where the different soundtracks come from, will be an inscription on the floor with the location in degrees, which displays its latitude and longitude along the 360 degrees of terrestrial surface.
