Soundreaming is an interactive Internet presentation, that takes the form of an audio-visual archive of locations around Barcelona. Inspired by environment, experience, and memory and motivated by the inversion of the traditional roles of photography and sound in the media and art worlds, “Soundreaming” emphasizes the importance of the acoustic environment on our perception of visited places. Soundscapes replace photography as the dominant documentary element at the core of artistic practice. The visual representation is directly inspired by the audio documentation of the locations featured in the archive. Moreover, this technique allows for the transparency of environmental sound to shape the audience’s perception of the artwork and in turn, allows the visual component of the composition more freedom to express itself.
