Benoît Maubrey: audio igloo
RECYLCLED SOUNDS: the Audio Igloo.
An acoustic space: a building made from electroacoustic boxes . A room of my own – a sound space created from disguarded modern junk – the battered and disguarded artefacts of modern age. Relics temporarily salvaged from a metal schredder’s grinding teeth.
The boxes are not unlike the frozen building blocks of an igloo – when put together they turn into a dome-like space.
A room within a room : the Parochial Church as a refuge for homeless speakers. Thanks to the efficiency of the German recycling system (and sponsorship of BRAL Reststoffbearbeitung GmbH and Rethman AG) 400 loudspeaker boxes have been recycled into a new home: a habitat for listeners of avant-garde music.
