SoundLapse Concert

This concert presents the eight compositions commissioned in 2021 by the SoundLapse project, in Chile, and published by Gruenrekorder. The concert will be held at the Royal Dockyard Church on 26 May 2022, starting at 4:30pm.

The SoundLapse project is an interdisciplinary research initiative funded in 2019 by the Chilean National Agency for Research and Development. It seeks to highlight the acoustical heritage of wetlands in the south of Chile. The project brought together artists, acousticians, biologists and computer scientists with the aim of studying these ecosystems‘ unique soundscapes. As an outcome of the project’s periodic documentation of the “Parque Urbano El Bosque” wetland soundscapes in Valdivia, in 2021 eight sound artists were commissioned to compose works using these field recordings. The resulted compositions, which will be diffused live with the MAAST system, are the following:

Pete Stollery – Bosque
Francisco López – untitled #401
Ambrose Seddon – Reflecting Cau Cau and Parque Urbano El Bosque
Alejandro Albornoz – Mawida
Brona Martin – Parque Urbano to Curiñanco beach
Rob Mackay – Ritmos del Parque Urbano el Bosque
Felipe Otondo – Wetland dawn time-lapse
Aki Pasoulas – Wetlands
