Composition for Tuning an Architectural Space, 2012/2018, transforms a usually unseen and unremarkable part of the architecture of the Sydney Opera House through a live vocal performance of four singers. Revealing the resonant frequencies of the space, the work is an immersive sound composition that exists ‘at the meeting point between the singers and the architecture’.
Featuring vocals by Clive Birch, Benjamin Caukwell, Sonya Holowell, Jenny Liu and Simon Lobelson
This performance is presented as part of the 21st Biennale of Sydney, SUPERPOSITION: Equilibrium & Engagement.
