Most people would probably say that architecture does not produce sound, it cannot be heard. But neither does it radiate light yet it can be seen. We see the light it reflects and thereby gain an impression of form and material. In the same way we hear the sounds it reflects and they, too, give us an impression of form and material (Steen Eiler Rasmussen – Expericing Architecture (1959)

 TUNED CITY FESTIVAL IN TALLINN/ESTONIA JULY 2011
TUNED CITY FESTIVAL II
Sonic Landmarks – a sonic path through Tallinn
Over the summer of 2011, Tuned City Tallinn will undertake an acoustic exploration of Tallinn. The goal will be to identify and explore the sonic landmarks of the city which define its identity, shape its communication and transform the perceptions of its visitors and inhabitants. A fascinating cross-section of international artists, performers, scientists and thinkers will be brought together to present their ideas about sound and space. In addition, the public will be invited to participate directly through a series of workshops and sound walks and experience diverse site specific installations, performances and demonstrations.
Tuned City Tallinn builds on ideas developed during the first ever event of its kind, held in Berlin during the summer of 2008. We’ll keep you informed about the program we plan already during spring 2011 and the actual program scheduled for the week 4th-10th july 2011.
