Winter School 2014
« SOUNDING ARCHITECTURES »
When research & sound creation meet
Art lies in suggestion, you should not show everything …
It is necessary to keep the mystery on the screen,
The effects always have to arrive before their causes, as it happens in real life.
Organization : CRESSON Laboratory (Center for research on sonic space & urban environment)
Date : From Monday, February 3rd till Friday 7th, 2014
Deadline for registration : 15th december 2013
The 2nd edition of the winter school, one-week intensive training, aiming to share the knowledge and the know-how of Cresson laboratory research team in the field of sound, is held, this year, under the theme: “Sound auscultation of architecture”.
Participants are invited to auscultate materials, make spaces speak, revisit an architecture-manifesto, that of School of Architecture of Grenoble. After an exercise of hearing using his ears and microphones, each participant is invited to compose a sound postcard relevant to his sonic experience of the building.
This week training articulates multidisciplinary theoretical and methodological courses in the mornings and practical workshops in the afternoons. Both animated by the laboratory’s researchers. The last day (Friday, 7th) will take the form of a collective seminar for the restitution of the work undertaken during the week. Participants and researchers will be invited to exchange questions back and forth between research and sound creation.
