2,2 O - Sonic Architecture of the Inner Space

2017, Interactive real-time binaural sound installation

Link to project website:   

( 2,2 ) 0 - Sonic Architecture of the Inner Space is a mix media installation. The central piece is an interactive spatial sound composition in a completely black space, accompanied by a two-channel film installation and a durational performance which take place in a waiting room outside the sound composition.

(2,2) 0 is a proposal for a cinematic space where the visual external stimulus is removed. An interactive installation which utilizes real-time rendered binaural sound systems.

( 2,2 ) 0 is made from a collaborative process between artist Nazare Soares, sound artist Øystein Kjørstad Fjeldbo and artist and shamanic practitioner Amalia Fonfara. We have taken the structure of a (2,2) mode shamanic drum as our reference and built an invisible architecture that through wireless headphones is experienced sonically inside a completely dark space. The aural experience is limited to one person at an unlimited given time. Thus the duration of the sound composition depends on visitors’ movements within time and space.

We have developed a system/ diagram and a map which depict a spatial sound composition made from movements and motions of sound events and sound objects. We have applied ritualistic gestures, taking place in collective meditation journey sessions with a shamanic drum, as the main methodology in the creative processes.
