More info ::

van der Putten & Galarreta's performance deals with minimal changing vocal tones and electromagnetic sounds of broken harddisks that meet in the speakers to modulate each other. This results in a very physical and intense sound experience that enhance the acoustics of the spaces where they play.

They also present their new LP release 'Invisible Architecture' that explores the acoustic architecture of a tower through its surrounding sounds, subtle acoustic phenomena and the human voice. Resonances and reverberations are emphasized and prolonged through vocal interaction with sound space and non-conventional different microphone techniques. In this project Galarreta & van der Putten want to make the acoustic reflections audible, more than the direct source that generate it. The frequencies, amplitude, modulation of sound textures, as well as the breathing voice rhythm, the position of the microphones and its types, are responding to the qualities of the chosen site and its acoustic characteristics. This work was made in the winter of 2013-14, in the tower of the Centre International d'art et du paysage, Ile de Vassivière, France and was supported by the Mondriaan Fund.
