in berlin, cardiff's 'motet' is displayed i a white walled space withe two
rows of columns on either side. there is a window on the wall opposite the
door (i think), but you don't get any exciting visuals from it. it is a very
centred installation, as the speakers are positioned in a circle and are
projecting inwards. i usually was also looking in the direction of the
centre, looking at the people moving around. only right in the spot, i
remember looking outwards, but did not stay there very long, as i prefered
walking along the individual voices.
the space is of course very important - in a pitch black room, it would
create very different experiences.
are loud sound pieces in a controlled setting (you can leave when you want
to!) always exciting? i just thought about pomassl's low tone in a dark
space, that has a sound pressure of 120 db, or some of viola's
