Soundreaming: where sounds become memories instead of photographies
What if… instead of hundreds of pictures, I could take home dozens of sounds and millions of different acoustic moments from the city I have visited on my holiday? How wonderful would it be to take home the sound of the sea in Juan Le Pins, the noisy charming sound of Rambla or the quiet white sensation from Zermatt? Well, a duo of artists: Ewa Doroszenko and Jacek Doroszenko did it on www.soundreaming.org.
Soundreaming is an audio-visual archive of locations made by these two artists. The acoustic environment can provide a tremendous amount of the sense of place and feeling of a location in a different way than photographs, said the artists. Therefore, in their artistic project, Soundreaming, soundscapes replace photographs and graphic representations are based on sound. The sound recording technique allows approaching the transparency of the environmental sound and translating and presenting it visually in a new context. Sounds are connected with visuals, but with the emphasis on the autonomous power of ambient sound to tell its own story and appeal to the imagination.
The project has been produced in a framework of an Artist-in-Residence Program at Fundació AAVC Hangar in Barcelona (ES), Kunstnarhuset Messen in Ålvik (NO) and Atelierhaus Salzamt in Linz (AU).
