The materiality of space

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

Spaces can be seen as the enablers and analogues of social configurations for music making. Pragmatically, iconic concert halls determine significant aspects of the present of music, in terms of concepts such as proximity, separation, resonance, silence, community, etc. This presentation will discuss ways we interpret the possibilities of space for music making, in terms of notions of rhythmic socialisation (de Certeau, Lefevbre). Digital spaces both encode (in the realm of impulse response reverb, for example) and extend the possibilities for social configuration, yet our notions of digital spaces are still informed by these concepts, even if digital space confronts some of them.
