Towards the expanded field in Music and Architecture

07.- 09.03.2018 – Experimental and interdisciplinary approaches to immaterial spatiotemporal environments: Performance, lectures, exhibition at House of Architecture Graz (HDA, AT).


Virtual reality and spatial audio technologies bring about a new paradigm in the fields of architecture and music. While defying classification, works developed in these media extend our spatial and auditory sensibilities beyond what is perceivable in the physical world.
Can we regard them however as architecture and music, or are they foreign to their origins?
Together with architect Constantinos Miltiades I presented our investigations and exhibited works on virtual navigable environments and sculptural spatial audio. The event intended to initiate a discussion with invited space theorist Stephan Guenzel and students on the nature of such explorations, in parallel on future of music and architecture in the expanded field.
