Omschrijving werk

Virginie Dubois: "keywords: sound, soundscape, acoustic, acoustic ecology, space, sound spatialization, listening, architecture, public space, public intervention. “My practice focuses on the relationship between sound and architecture, and more generally between sound and the listener. Exploring the spatial aspects of sound through public installations, my work focuses on the acoustic qualities of space and reflects on the transformative dimensions of sound. By investigating on the physical dimension of sound as well as on a conceptualization of space, I approach sound as a spatial event, a material phenomenon and an auditive experience.”

Etude for Listener n°3 - Dust and Nois
Titel Etude for Listener n°3 - Dust and Nois
Jaartal 2015
Omschrijving Invited by Soledad Foundation to produce a new work following the theme of “Hidden Places”, Dust and Noise - Ballad along the Schinkel investigates the invisible –but nevertheless frightening- activities of the electromagnetic waves in public space. Gathering relevant information from various field trips in the area, Dust and Noise reveals the impressive sonic topography of the hidden electromagnetic presence along the Schinkel.

Etude for Listener n°2 - ‘Polyphony i
Titel Etude for Listener n°2 - ‘Polyphony i
Jaartal 2015
Omschrijving ‘Polyphony in five movements with gradual crescendo’ is an etude written to improve listening skills and familiarize the listener with modes of listening. Concerned with the expressed sonic qualities of a space, the composition develops a ludic approach with descriptions and interpretations that directly involve the listener in the experience of the soundscape. Starting with a gentle beginning, ‘Polyphony in five movements with gradual crescendo’ centers on specific dimensions, and gradually involves each of these movements into a complex awareness of listening. The composition follows a structure in five parts that reveal the various modes of listening and attention.

Etude for Listener n°1
Titel Etude for Listener n°1
Jaartal 2014
Omschrijving 'Etude for listener' is a project started in 2014. Investigating the acoustic qualities of selected locations, the project is a poetic invitation to wander into the urban spaces and experiment with various modes of listening. Through observing the relationship between public places and their sonic environment, each etude takes a certain perspective and produces a set of concepts and ideas in which the listening experience is framed. The compositional aspects are centred on the listeners and the musicality of the environment. By drawing attention to specific places, sounds and sound phenomena, and creating the corresponding walks, each etude is in itself an accompaniment to the listening experience of the audience. Here, the musical score becomes the spatial field where people come and stop, then listen, and compose music by themselves within the surrounding soundscape. Etude for Listener n°1 exploits the architecture of a bridge in Amsterdam Zuid to composes a listening walk that studies the velocity and behaviour of moving sounds at different locations around the bridge.

Experiental Room
Titel Experiental Room
Jaartal 2015
Omschrijving Using the variety of sounds recorded in the museum space (from the sound of the metallic structure to the general ambience), the audio composition acts as a musical fiction and invites the listener to experience DordtYart from a sonic perspective. The composition is a site-specific work that mixes the various existing sound elements into a spatial narrative that generates its own story, while connecting with the entire signature of the location.

Audible Space
Titel Audible Space
Jaartal 2014
Omschrijving To understand how sound can suggest space, the work exploits the acoustic qualities of urban and public design to produce a series of auditive experiences. Using objects such as a satellite dish, a ventilation duct, antennas and alarm horns, ‘Audible Space’ uses DIY audio-engineering circuits to enhance the auditive experience from these objects, and compose with the different outcomes. The whole experience is designed as a musical piece where the perception of space follows an expanding crescendo amplification.

Jaartal 2014
Omschrijving Using the silo as an instrument to explore the acoustic phenomena, the project is a site-specific work that exploits the architectural qualities of a silo to produce semi-live compositions in space. The work explores the phenomena of reverberations and echoes.

Phenomenon of the Syllables
Titel Phenomenon of the Syllables
Jaartal 2013
Omschrijving Exploring the sound stream of speech, the work focuses on the process of formation and appearance of syllables. Featuring the vocal sounds of 12 different languages, the composition creates an abstract landscape of signs. The physicality of sound is emphasized by the movements of the voices.
