SOUND AR­CHI­TEC­TURE

Italia Luxury - - Entertainment -

In­spired by the sounds that an­i­mated the vast space of the Baths of Cara­calla in the 3rd cen­tury AD, Amer­i­can mu­si­cian and com­poser Alvin Cur­ran has de­vel­oped a site-spe­cific project com­pris­ing dif­fer­ent types of sounds in­clud­ing an­i­mal noises, run­ning water, frag­ments of hu­man voices speak­ing in Latin and texts from an­cient Ro­man po­ets. His project has trans­formed the Frigi­dar­ium into a sound in­stal­la­tion orig­i­nat­ing from all parts of the world and from all direc­tions. The au­dio ex­pe­ri­ence has been de­signed to sur­prise vis­i­tors, with 2-3 min­utes of silent in­ter­vals .
