Concreto – Macba

  MUSEUM SCAPES – Art Residency MACBA 

One-month residency – project “CONCRETO”.

The residency consisted of working in the “landscapes” of the museum. The idea of Concreto was to build up a story with the means of sound objects that were part of the acoustic reality of the museum. The concrete sound as a discourse and the concrete of the building structure as a source for sounds that were presented at the end as a live sound installation.

Nicolas Melmann Concreto – MACBA

Recording sounds, using reverberations and interacting with the art pieces of the museum, the aim was to investigate and portray the elements that shape the sonic universe of a place that it is conventionally destined for silence and contemplation.

Putting together diverse audio materials, he formulated a story with sound, which was presented at a concert and accompanied by live processes and instruments –establishing in this way an interaction between the sound objects and the musical objects.
