Ceramica Soundscape

The sound installation Ceramica was developed in collaboration with EcaLab, a team of researchers who explore the use of ceramic material for architecture. The soundscape created for Ceramica aims to support the tangible relationship between people and sound spatialisation. The mechanism was designed for directional sound, thus having individual speakers in 70 ceramic cones, operating as acoustic chambers. This allows the audience to feel close to the sound they are manipulating through their hands. A combination of synthesised sounds, random signals and lights elaborate a unique environment that through an auditory futuristic image suggests innovative ways for the application of sonic or solid materials. Sound electronics and soundscape for the Composer Wall were produced by Ian Costabile. Sound field recordings for the Sound Map Wall by Eduardo Coutinho.
