Erosion/Evaporation (Scan Reina Sofía) | Blake Carrington

The present piece commissioned by Radio del Museo Reina Sofia, titled Erosion/Evaporation (Scan Reina Sofia), treats the architectural plans of the museum as open-ended music scores. Using custom sonification software that scans the plans in myriad ways in a real-time performance, the structures are translated into sound spanning a spectrum from dark drone to crisp polyrhythm. Rather than considering the sound as an empirical revelation of the architecture’s secrets, the correspondence between them is seen more as one of poetic tension. There are many ways that one might translate architecture into sound, and this is one of them.
