Untitled 2020

by Oliver Lehner (AT)
This work proposes a sonic intervention into virtual space influenced by Mario De Vega’s Untitled (2002): “Untitled, Ice-cream truck in rent driving around the Gallery’s neighborhood for two hours. Ice-cream truck, driver and audio recording (MUCA Roma. Mexico City, Mexico)”. Untitled 2020 is a possible answer to the question of how to present sound recordings in a virtual space that were created in physical space. By using a contact microphone to pick up the music box’s vibrations, I am skipping sound wave propagation in air and am working with a signal that is pure to resonate in virtual air.
