Ora episode 15 at 8pm – Sabine von Fischer on the history of acoustics

October 30th, 2014 · No Comments

The Clear Spot at 8pm is Ora 15: Echoes from the Sound Chamber. Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin are joined by Sabine von Fischer, a Swiss architect and writer whose research is centred on the history of acoustics, with particular focus on the 1920s. Reading and discussing a number of primary sources from the era, considering historical interjections by Emily Thompson and a sound design fiction by Gert Jonke, the three contributors explore layers of architectural memory, the relationships between technology and perception, cultural heritage and canons, as well as the narratives, fictions and projections that the practice of the built environment engenders. [Repeated Friday 9am.]
