Metaklang: The Poltergeist of Site is a live performance and sounds installation project for RMIT Gallery. Through three distinct sonic responses to sound field recordings collected from three specific sites, this project explores the relationship between sound and architecture, notions of site specificity and explores the many strategies employed by sound artists and musicians in dealing with acoustic audio, site specific sound and music.

 

Participating groups: Snawklor, Contrail, Minit. Snawklor have recorded the sounds of a gaming arcade in Melbourne. Berlin based Minit have recorded the eerie sounds within the Bauhaus buildings. Sydney based Contrail have recorded material from 20 metres below the surface in disused military tunnels on the coast of Sydney. Each group have composed sonic responses to the sounds they capture.
