Sonic Projections

Sonic Projections is an artistic study on how individuals unconsciously internalize sounds and how they remember or create and project them.

Here, participants are being asked to anonymously answer questions about memories, interactions and relations that they have with sounds. The act of answering is producing what is called a projection. It can be considered as an externalization of a memory and a transformation from thoughts to words of the participants own choices.

Using the answers a program that select sound-related-words and generate a textual score is on display bellow.

The willingness, firstly, is not to ask musicians to sonify these scores by improvising and recording music pieces, but rather to generate new internal sonic memories by reading these texts.

Then, these newly created memories can be injected to the process and become part of a large, sonic, social, collaborative, half human half technical feedback loop or just contemplated as they are.

Later this project might be implemented and video projected in a space and/or might constitut a textual score database for participants to sonically improvise and record themselves.
