RotundA Of The Moscow Conservatory Great Hall (2020)
Instrumental Acoustic Performance for the architectural form and performers
The rotunda of the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory is a unique architectural form with unique acoustics. This is the intersection of the audible and the inaudible at the point of their random meeting - distortion, gap in reality. At this point, what is usually hidden - sounds, as if architecture "appeals" to your ears. You take a step and: "listen to" rotunda - rotunda "listen to" you.
"Acoustic portrait" means listening to a place and dialogue with the place, awakening his voice, playing with sound and his behavior. This is a silent place, like a living instrument that calls for it to be heard, bowed over it, hit it with a stick, breathed in air or sang. This is an opportunity to think of this place as a musical instrument.
