tarek atoui - I/E
I/E is an archaeology of sound, a research in sonic stromatography*, cracking into hidden frameworks of the city. Sounds are recorded from below the surface, the sea and the underground world, moving upwards in an attempt to locate, decipher and understand the identity of the place. The recordings transcribe the multiple layers of the landscape.
For this project Tarek Atoui has been collaborating with sound recordists. Porto’s edition will count with Eric La Casa. Together they will navigate the acoustics, refractions and reverberations of waterfronts and their surroundings using different microphones to create a sound scan on a macro and micro scale.
