IDEA: Brutalism architecture reflected in sound art sculptures.
WHAT: Each piece incorporates a different combination of the sound-sculptures and is composed as a one or two-bar long pattern that goes through an endless loop. Strictly metric and pulse-based rhythms are used as a sonic metaphor for the grid-based and geometric structure of Brutalist architecture.
WHY: While these sound sculpture pieces might at first seem merely noisy and harsh, there is a hypnotic allure and a poetry to them. The monolithic appearance, visibility of material, valuation of crude concrete, strict geometries, repetitive modules, lack of nonfunctional ornamentation, these were all fundamental principles of Brutalism architecture, which are constructed in these sound-sculptures
