Acústica Concreta (Meinblau Gallery, Berlin), 2016

Concrete and mixed media
Variable dimensions (according to exhibition space)


Concrete Acoustics is a site specific sculpture that makes visible the acoustic relations that are hidden in the space. The sound installation produces no sound but instead solidifies the particular sonic reflections of the space using architectonic materials.

The sculpture reproduces the dominant acoustic geometry that can be measured in relation to the architecture, through a study of a 1000Hz sonic wave that starts at the center of the gallery and the calculation of it's 10,000 directions in a standard amplitude of 2 reflections, the process consisted on digging on the data to find the place where the sound concentrates again the most, as a bridge of communication given by the architecture itself.

The installation presents in the space the physical volumes, tensions and borders that occur naturally within the relation between architecture and sound, and by it’s mere presence it changes the original acoustics, as an instrument that is the reflex of the space itself.
