From Architecture - Tarek Atoui

October 22 and 23, 2015

On 22 and 23 October 2015, artist Tarek Atoui will be presenting the third chapter of his music and sound piece, From Architecture, conceived in close relation to Frank Gehry’s building.

 

Throughout the summer of 2014, before opening to the public, Tarek Atoui and four sound technicians recorded the resonances and vibrations of the Foundation, compiling an important library of sound phenomena from the building. At the time of the Foundation’s inauguration in October 2014, this collection of sounds formed the basis of four live shows played by the artist and his guests.

 

In October 2015, Tarek Atoui will be moving into a new phase of From Architecture. To this end, the artist will incorporate a new, electronic instrument, which is linked to the Gehry building by its composite materials and which will seek to conserve the sounds recorded, as well as the recording methods of those involved, during the previous two stages. This “table-instrument” houses high-tech software which enables the artist (or another musician) to create different compositions and distribute them real-time throughout the actual architecture of the building, thanks to the 16 speakers placed around the venue’s spaces, including the outside.

Performances will take place the 22nd and 23rd of october 2015 at the Fondation Louis Vuitton with Tarek Atoui, Gaspar Claus, Uriel Barthélémi, Hélène Breschand, Carl Ludwig Hübsch, Susie Ibarra, Eric La Casa , Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Eve Risser
