Chambers

Chambers

Sound creation workshop.


This workshop aims to activate Alvin Lucier´s piece Chambers (1968) for the exhibition Une musique interiéur (Conduct, Language, Voice, Inner Ears) at Tabakalera.

In this work, Lucier is interested in resonant environments of various sizes, both indoor and outdoor, working both on their acoustic characteristics and on what might be called "imbrications of spaces" making one specific "environment"; audible through another, or using one to make the other "resonate". But as soon as a space or a resonant body is taken in another one, what listening do we have of them? What is this relation likely to produce, both in their respective perception or experience and from the point of view of that which does not belong to either of them, in other words, of the relation itself?

This workshop will attempt to answer these questions by examining some of the spaces and architectures of San Sebastian. Previous practice in field recording (outdoor sound recording and audio editing) will be appreciated, but not required.
