SOUNDREAMING, BY EWA AND JACEK DOROSZENKO!
The Soundreaming is an interactive Internet presentation that takes the form of an audio-visual archive of locations around Barcelona. This website documents our site-specific compositions and sound impressions. Recording the dreams and both natural and human designed sounds during the expedition we created sound compositions derived from this material. Sound installations are complemented with a unique electronic audio composition, mixed with sounds recorded in Barcelona and lo-fi music.
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 or interspersed with videos, but with the emphasis on the autonomous power of ambient sound to tell its own story and appeal to the imagination. Soundreaming attempts to translate selected audio events, taking place on the outskirts of the city, to the visual language. This project is a joyful rediscovery of various urban places, sort of an affirmation of soundscape and sense of hearing the World.
The project has been produced in a frame of an Art Residency Program at Fundació AAVC Hangar in Barcelona, Spain, 2014.
