Visitors will learn about and see examples of various types of interactive sound installations. They will also have an opportunity to interact with the algorithm of a work by composer, sound designer, and Moscow Conservatory lecturer Nikolay Khrust.
The talk introduces visitors to the interactive sound installation—a relatively new syncretic art form that has emerged at the intersection of sound and visual practices and which borrows from various disciplines, such as static and kinetic sculpture, installation, sound art, science art, and music.
The unique character of interactive sound installation comes from the combination of opposites: static sculpture and the time-based medium of music; the object’s immersion in its own complex audiovisual world and its openness to the viewer. The lecture will look at how the making of sound for such installations is different from the writing of classical musical compositions. Visitors will also be able to interact with Khrust’s sound work.
