Tuning Architecture: Infrasound 26 Performance

Jointly presented by Gray Area Foundation for the Arts and swissnex San Francisco, Milieux Sonores: Sound and Imaginary Spaces is a collective show by the Institute for Computer Music and Sound Technology at the Zurich University of the Arts (ICST Zurich) and curator Marcus Maeder. A week before the exhibit closes, swissnex and GAFFTA invite two of the most radical sound art projects in the Bay Area to take the gallery by sonic storm. Infrasound (Randy Yau and Scott Arford) and Michael Gendreau explore the physicality of sound, the translation of sound into physical force, and the relationship between sound, architecture, perception, and the body.

Where the five installations in Milieux Sonores aim to give physical presence to virtual spaces, Infrasound and Michael Gendreau attempt to take sound’s raw physical power to the built environment, to play the building in which they perform, making the physical space a direct component of the art within.

With support from Pro Helvetia, the Swiss Arts Council.
