On the occasion of RE:SOUND 2019, the 8th International Conference for Histories of Media Arts in Aalborg, Justin Bennett will present a talk on sonic interventions in public space, showing material from the recent research project Multiplicity.

In a group exhibition linked to the conference, he will show the work BXL_FLT: a series of recordings made through acoustic filters, together with the sculptural filters themselves.

Opening on 19/08/2019, 19h at Musikkens Hus, Musikkens Pl. 1, 9000 Aalborg

Multiplicity – a spectral analysis of Brussels. Audio walk.

Although “spectral analysis” suggests a scientific approach, Multiplicity is a multiplexed wild ghost chase through the urban fabric of the capital of Europe. A mashup of field recordings, sonic experiments, observations, theoretical and utopian texts, and conflicting multi-lingual instructions guide us through territories defined by language, politics, urbanism and sound.
