Rewiring Brutalism

Langham Research Centre Performance


The musique concrète ensemble Langham Research Centre will be performing a new work created from sounds recorded in and around brutalist buildings in Paris.

The performance takes inspiration from the optimistic, utopian concepts found in the modernist designs of key buildings by architects including Le Corbusier, Oscar Niemeyer and Jean Renaudie, with te geometry of these buildings informing the structure of the music.

Both visual and acoustic observations of line, plane, volume, scale, proportion, location, intersection, superimposition, interaction and space within space all impact on what can be heard. This is music derived from extensive on-location recordings and sound actions that convey the experience of these buildings aurally. This performance complements and elaborates the ideas found in the Langham Research Centre's collaboration with Photolanguage running all week in the Hub.
