Spatial sound installation
Dar a Ouvir, Convento de São Francisco, Coimbra, Portugal.
July 11 to September 6 2020
Through a continuous, cyclical aural path around four interconnected soundscapes, the Cloister space is valued as a catalyst center, which enhances the revolving, meditative and contemplative movement, but also of relationship, communication, reconnection and transformation.
Four different soundscapes – water, insects and birds, frequencies and voice, silence – are spatially resonated with a psycho-acoustics specific to the Cloister galleries. Along the sound path, the act of rotating continuously around the center invites the unification of being. This resonant cyclic movement becomes a means of sensory attunement and acoustic sensibilisation towards a deep listening to multiple voices of a primordial memory, the four elements and the local biodiversity.
Binaural recording, recorded with DPA 4060 stereo omnidirectional microphones. For an immersive experience, please listen with headphones. Note: due to the specific acoustic spatialisation of the installation work, this experience could only be felt physically walking through the space of the Cloister. Therefore this recording is a documentation of the work but does not entirely translates the experience.
