In-Between by scanner published on 2011/06/13 22:04:49 +0000 Closing track from Scanner CD In-Between (2011), freely distributed as part of Panorama 13 exhibition at Le Fresnoy, France. The work uses the ambience and sonic detritus of the architecture itself to create this unsettling dark landscape. When Bernard Tschumi designed Le Fresnoy, he conceived of a building without a centre, a new structure wrapped around another already existing development. What now exists is a sense of the in-between, a place between past and present, beginning and closing conversations between different times and places. In-Between explores an experience that utilises all the mysterious sounds that reside in Le Fresnoy, from the drone of the air conditioning, the hum of electricity, the ductwork for heating and ventilation, as well as the movement of bodies within. In-Between should heighten a public awareness of both the acoustic space around them as well as the very concept of the design itself, as well as creating a work that is socially relevant to the gallery space. Scanner’s projects continue to mine an idea of the hidden, the subtle traces left behind by people. In-Between will continue to raise questions about public space and how the sonic architecture plays a role in our response to any location.
