Within our environment saturated by technical media, the devices of sound technology impart upon their output a series of conditions inherent in them. Media sound embeds particular physical characteristics of the emitting devices, their particular diffusion patterns and their interaction with their acoustic surrounding, their particular scale, and the diverse outcomes of the procedures involved in the recording or production process of the sound.

These characteristics constitute our habitual hearing practices, nurture the way we decode sound around us: we segregate or identify sounds on the basis of qualities and practices of media we’ve been exposed to and have learned to decode, our focus is defined through these conditions.

During my residency I will be developing a sound installation titled “A study in focus”. This work juxtaposes and superimposes diverse types of loudspeakers and loudspeaker configurations and employs a range of field recordings, synthesized material, found footage and analog circuitry recordings, exposed as particular instances of technical procedures and media qualities. The aim is to enhance the blurry thresholds where the shifting traces of our aural memories shape the process of sound apprehension.
