"Architecture is Frozen Music" - Goethe
Points in Space – I is a set of installations created at Sound Reasons by Ish S and diFfused beats. A couple of the multi-channel works have been created in collaboration with Raqs Media Collective and Vivan Sundaram. The sound installations are based on spatial listening processes where the audience is encouraged to navigate the sonic space in order to get a heterogeneous perception of sound, time and space created within the installation. Here, the sound develops spatially and its discovery unfolds itself in the present, bringing with it the experiences of sound and listening as an immersive spatial sculpture.
These installations are about listening and being heard; a sort of sonic heterotopia wherein various experiences are created which are a part of both the imagination and reality. The works presented in Points in Space – I outline the creative interplay between the objectivity of the sonic phenomenon created and the subjectivity of the perceptions filtered through individual experiences. Imaginary narratives can be drawn to trace the individual experiences of listening to the sonic works installed from various 'Points in Space'. These non-locational perspectives in turn initiate deeper immersive listening experiences, while drawing attention to the finer points of sound, its movements, its processes and its spatiality.
