SUBJECTIVIZATION OF SOUND. FAR FIELD
Sound Installation, 2018
Sound, like water, is capable of taking the form of its container, ready to adapt to everything and transform itself. Sound, like water, can flood a space and fill it, bouncing from one wall to another. Sound, in its graphic representation, is made of waves, amplitudes and sinusoidal curves, just like water.
The double project of Alexey Grachev and Sergei Komarov, sound artists and engineers, emphasize this similarity.
"Far field" is a six-channel sound installation that runs through a 25 meter long alley, accompanying the steps of visitors. The recorded sound of water from the shore of the Gulf of Gaeta is brought to Maranola and electronically processed until it becomes abstract white noise, unreal and yet similar to a monotonous and chaotic stormy sea.
The installation culminates in a live performance in a courtyard, space that calls for both intimacy and concentration.
"Subjectivation of sound" is a performance in wich the score changes according to the context and where instruments are analog synthesizers and software created by the artists themselves. The electronic synthesis gives shape to an artificial. liquid and iridescent music.
