Artist Statement:


    Simultaneous Echoes is a practice-based research project. The project explores how fragmented musical elements, which were recorded in different locations and at different times can be reconstructed in cyberspace. The cyberspace is used as a musical notation, a ‘3D locative music score’. The fragmented sound and images of the location are sampled with a set of audio recording and video cameras and with the support of GPS data sampled in specifically selected locations in and around Londonderry and in collaboration with communities of interest there including choirs. As a music score constitutes a kind of thinking space for a music composer, this spatial, locative music score is also a media thinking space for conducting music in a new way. It reframes in innovative ways the process of producing whole data, recording, capturing, editing and disseminating music and soundscapes.
