Displaced Sounds (in cooperation with KRAAK and QO-2) is a series of lectures, exhibitions and concerts that focus on the undervalued role of ‘sound’ in a visual culture. For this 12th edition, we present a varied and fascinating programme.
Karin Bijsterveld (NL) gives a lecture on the history of the car radio, titled Acoustic Cocooning: How the Car Became a Listening Booth. How did cars evolve from loud, explosion-driven vehicles to mobile, quiet cocoons? For Room Tone, Brandon LaBelle (US) made 3 audio recordings of and in his Berlin apartment. He sent the recordings to several architects, asking them to turn the aural information into a model of the apartment. Six years ago, Michael J. Schumacher (US) created an unforgettable performance at STUK. This time, he reveals an intriguing audio world that further examines the relation between sound and space.
