Florian Tuercke - London Structural Sound Project

London Structural Sound Project
Florian Tuercke
23 May – 13 June 2014 at arebyte Gallery

The project was participatory in its nature and invited the public to take a crucial part in its production through the distribution of the microphones throughout the vicinity (1km radius) of the gallery.

Tuercke assembled 300 mini-contact microphones which were handed out to visitors of arebyte gallery and installed in different locations by the public. The contact-microphones recorded sound-waves within solid materials and enabled the listener to hear sounds which are normally inaudible to the human ear.

A recording-team, consisting of the artist and collaborators visited each site and recorded a unique field sample at each place. Each microphone had its own characteristics; its location and the material it’s mounted on, thus giving a unique sound-scape of the city. The sound of the city was used by the artist (together with other sonic art collaborators) and re-composed within the gallery space to create a macro sound map of the city. The interactive maps grew and expanded as the microphones were implemented.

…by arebyte showcases material created by the arebyte team and educational partners, relating to our physical shows in the gallery, as well as previous screen based works by alumni artists. For this strand of AOS arebyte will curate and create content in relation with the physical shows taking place in the gallery space, as well as feature arebyte’s alumni work commissioned by the gallery since 2013. This visual material will allow arebyte to expand on the theme addressed by its physical exhibitions and will be a place for art audiences to further explore, interact and engage with the arebyte programme.
