Inner Architecture and Psychoacoustics

9:00 am CET

Through composition, synthesis, and psychoacoustics, the electronic production of sound creates an amorphous environment. These modernist tools for the production of art and commerce exist in a multidimensional space. By examining these artistic methodologies, we can dissect these sonic expanses and begin to understand the role our ears play in the creation and unfolding of our reality. In his talk, Max Eilbacher will discuss how characteristics of electronic music such as timbre, architecture and technology play a role in shaping his artistic practice and our shared bodily experience of vibration.

Max Eilbacher is an intermedia artist based in Baltimore, USA. His sound practice draws upon traditions of algorithmic composition, musique concréte, and avant-garde performance. With these traditions, he creates conceptual systems in which synthesis and processing-intensive software environments are constructs of compositional and sculptural form. The sonic assemblage of social, political, and physical are reflected and inquired upon by treating space, timbre, and perception as elastic and malleable parameters.
