IDEA: Soundscapes replace photographs and graphic representations are based on sound.
WHAT: Soundreaming is an interactive Internet presentation that takes the form of an audio-visual archive of locations around Barcelona. This website documents out site-specific compositions and sound impressions. Recording the dreams and both natural and human-designed sounds during the expedition we created sound compositions derived from this material. Sound installations are complemented with a unique electronic audio composition, mixed with sounds recorded in Barcelona and lo-fi music.
WHY: When traveling, most people take photographs and use them to communicate a sense of what the experience of being in that place might have been like. However, the acoustic environment can provide a tremendous amount of the sense of place and feeling of a location in a different way than photographs. The sound recording technique allows approaching the transparency of the environmental sound and translating and presenting it visually in a new context. Sounds are connected with visuals, but with the emphasis on the autonomous power of ambient sound to tell its own story and appeal to the imagination.
