Occupation Sonore

Collaboration with Patrick Valiquet (CA) and Think Tank
2007, Entres Autres, CDEx, UQÀM, Montréal (CA)

Occupation Sonore was a series of in situ experiments in the manipulation of public sonic space. Over the course of six exploratory sessions a public passageway was occupied and  transformed by acoustic vibrations. During the two final experiments which were part of an exhibition, the public was invited to help shape the sound and find the resonant frequencies of the building’s ventilation system by working with the software which we designed for the project. By physically moving through the space, participants experienced changes in the circulation of the sounds. The goal for the public presentation was to continue the research process and open it up to public participation.
