Musarc, established by Joseph Kohlmaier at the Faculty of Architecture and Spatial Design, London Metropolitan University, is a choir and performance group in its own right.
For their Salon at the Barbican, Musarc have a new film by sound artist Davide Tidoni which explores sonic impulse responses inside and around the Barbican by popping a balloon. Recorded during periods of silence, often at night, the results of such a seemingly mundane act are mesmerising. Tidoni adds a humorous dimension to this in the way he later stages the recording in the film.
See the full film on the night, alongside talks by the artist and guests exploring sound, architecture and perception, plus a performance by Musarcís choir and more.
