Every place has a unique identity. The materials and density of the building, its function, its location and its history give it particular characteristics. It therefore logically has its own unique acoustics and resonance frequencies.
To amplify these unique songs, Gaëtan Gromer has designed software that updates the recording technique developed by the composer Alvin Lucier in 1969.
As he approaches a building, it begins to ‘sing’ in its unique voice. When close to several buildings, they sing in chorus. The listener’s journey thus instantly recomposes the buildings’ symphony.
