Sonic Scenography >>
An investigation of _S P A C E_ through _S O U N D_
This exposition is the homeplace of ongoing documentation of questions, processes and conclusions (temporary and final) of scenographic investigations through sound.
A scenographic investigation is an inquiry into a place/space considering the atmospheric aesthetics - the immaterial elements (light, sound, smell, movement, textures) and the presence and relevance of the material elements (physical objects, parameters, textures)
Sonic Scenography is an experiential happening that consists primarily of audible elements - field & foley recordings, programmed sound sequences, voice recordings and conventional + non-conventional takes on music theory.
As a practice, scenographic investigation enables me to inquire the hidden performative dimensions to my everyday surroundings. I ask questions about spectatorship (what is it to be a spectator in my immediate situation?), accumulate scenographic foley and demonstrate my intents to create space within space by means of visual and sonic compositions, (which are fed and inspired by the accumulated scenographic foley).
I intend to use this exposition as support, documentation and evidence of my practice in asking questions, inviting curiosity to the familiar, and to open opportunities for stories within things, situations and places perhaps otherwise overlooked.
In the act of investigation, with a keen interest in audio composition and performance, I prioritise the audible, the sonic of the everyday, and support the inquiries by visual and written logs.
Thereafter, a reflection of the material collected takes place, wherein I may (re)approach, and (re)digest the information with an intent of engaging with the emotive story within the documented material.
Furthermore, I conduct spatial experiments and happenings to (re)engage with the material to make it scenographically performative.
