Hammam - Taroudant

Hammam - Taroudant, Morocco , is a 4 minutes piece that explores the acoustic musicality of a hammam (public bath) in Taroudant, Morocco. Recorded in the oldest hammam on the city, the traditional architecture features three rooms surmounted by hemispherical vaulted domes. With the highly reflective surface of the interior, and the watery environment, the place produces long resonances, as well as various layers and echoes. Accentuating and slightly distorting these acoustic qualities, the composition enriches the voices of the woman, their words, and intonations, laughs and lively gestures, to produce a vibrant polyphonic sonic experience of Taroudant’s public bath.

Snæfellsjokull - Excerpt 1.mp3
Snæfellsjokull - Excerpt 2_v3.mp3

Snæfellsjokull, Iceland, mixes field recordings from Iceland with whistling, breathing, toning and other vocal sounds, to produce a 30 minutes ambiant soundscape.
The vocals explore the fondamental frequency of space to activate a vibrational resonance with the listeners. The breath acts as the wind, while the humming vocals animate the spirit of the Icelandic landscape. Overlapping with the sounds of birds and nature, the composition creates a meditative - even shamanic- journey.

The sound piece was premiere during ArtRotterdam 2016, with the opening's live radio program from RAAR - Rotterdam Art And Radio.
