Amplified Bricks at In Parallel Spaces

Bricks cast with embedded audio electronics allow the ubiquitous building modules to function as sound objects.

 

The performance features a selection of bricks from a system that is being developed to construct full-scale sonically active architectural environments. Made from a range of materials—concrete, plaster, wax, silicone—each brick expresses its unique sonic signature when activated by a performer or stacked upon another, resulting in physical feedback.

In Parallel Spaces was a five day festival for contemporary music and performance held in Leipzig, Germany at the dual venues of NYG - West Gallery and Noch Besser Leben. In addition to concerts, performances, installation and dj-sets, the artists of the festival came together to discuss their musical and artistic positions.
