Joanna Przybyla : Sound as Architecture

£60.00

Product description

English No inscriptions

Over the course of several years the Polish artist Joanna Przybyła, who currently resides in Berlin, has been examining the relation between architecture and sound as a new, interdisciplinary field of art.
Referring to the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt’s assumption that already a single sound is music, Przybyła records separate sounds performed on various instruments, and also uses other tones, for example the toll of a bell, to create sound compositions which correspond to selected architecture, and are subsequently tuned to the given space and the way in which the shape of the interior resounds in the process of listening. The first public presentation of her sound sculpture took place in September 2011, in the space of St. Johannes-Evangelist-Kirche in Berlin.
From September 13 – October 4, 2015, her sound exhibition was held in the largest hall of the National Museum in Poznań under the title Sound as Architecture. On this occasion the museum published a book in which all the previous achievements of the artist were summarized.
