The Sound of Isolated Silence

Alastair Philip Wiper: Radio Anechoic Chamber at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Copenhagen

newmuseum: pheezy: Comprised of 1,600 foam wedges, Anri Sala’s semi-anechoic chamber is a space designed to absorb sound. For this symphonic installation, Sala recomposed the tempo of two piano concerto performances, which progress in and out of sync to produce the perception of musical echoes—a paradoxical experience in a space where actual echoes are impossible. #AnriSala by newmuseum “Anri Sala: Answer Me” is on view through April 10.
