Les Colonnes Sonores
(Architecture Order and Sound)
Les Colonnes Sonores are a series of six drawings with accompanying sound compositions. These drawings and soundscapes are an integration of the classical Greek architectural orders using a sonic counterpart. The classical orders represent harmony, strength, and elegance in the composition of ancient architectural form. Sound is integrated to explore new formal harmonics and proportions. This work explores the relationship of these orders to the sonic realm in the making of new archimusical elements that can be both seen and heard together.
This work explores the spatial relationships of the Corinthian order using sound rather than a purely geometric relation. The resulting geometric figures are embedded with a sonic quality not present in the original built form. The soundscape illustrates the trans-disciplinary sonification of the Corinthian proportions that can now be heard instead of only seen. The drawings illustrate a formal modulation of the original point cloud using the sonic elements, which results in a form that can now be visualized as well as heard.
