ARCHITECTONES II (3-5 July 2009)
ROYAL SALTWORKS OF ARC ET SENANS, SOUTH EAST FRANCE
In July 2008, the first edition of Architectones brought together a number of leading artists, architects, curators and theorists for a two-day conference on sound art. The conference addressed topics such as sound and architecture, curating sound and the role of sound in contemporary art via presentations and discussions relating essentially to artistic practice. Architectones II will take an in-depth look at the topic that elicited the most interest among participants - the relationship between sound and architecture. It will do so not from the point of view of practice but by examining the theory and thinking underpinning these practices. The event will consist of a day-long discussion on Saturday 5 July designed to stimulate in-depth exchanges between the speakers and the audience. Each speaker will prepare a short text and five questions that will form the basis for the discussion. These will be posted on the Architectones website in the weeks leading up to the event.
The programme will include a sound walk as well as installations and film screenings on the subject of sound and architecture, taking place on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
