2011/12/19 — Lecture Performance by Chambers for Space Inquiry at tanzhaus nrw, January 13, 2012

The lecture performance “Room Reverb - between Manipulation, Simulation and Situation” takes place at the symposium “Frequenzdialoge. Zum Medieneinsatz in Tanz und Medienkunst” and the festival Temps d’images 2012 at tanzhaus nrw, Dusseldorf.

We perceive roomes in their physical nature first and foremost through their quality of acoustic reverberation. Since reverberation can be technically manipulated or even be generated completely new, the auditory impression more and more fades away from the perception of the real physical space. Today, artificially produced reverberation through sound studios has become norm. Using selected examples, the lecture deales with the function, the application and the effects of reverb creation tools through their history untill today. At the end it asks, what will happen, if one perceive space again in this matter as the architectural acoustic allowes it.
