PHILIP SAMARTZIS: THE APPROACH 

 
Site, sound and space converge to define our experience and memory of place.
 
Microphonics comprises a series of sound recordings of the Art Gallery of South Australia rearticulated throughout the building and its environs to enhance the perceptual awareness of place. In the first phase of the
project specialist microphones will be employed to capture the acoustic and spatial behavior of assorted objects and events within the Gallery.
 
By strategically disrupting the natural ambience of the gallery, this work seeks to highlight the pervasive and mutable nature of sound through methods of association, displacement and activation. To achieve this, loudspeakers will be strategically distributed throughout the Gallery to render subtle environmental impressions separate to those that usually occur in each space.  The intention is to arouse audience attention through the interplay between the natural and the constructed and to demonstrate the manner in which site, sound and space converge to define our experience and memory of place.
