Chrs Galarreta & Janneke van der Putten
proyecto “Invisible Architecture”

Invisible Architecture_LP, cover + text

Invisible Architecture es un proyecto del peruano Christian Galarreta
en colaboración con la artista Holandesa Janneke van der Putten.
Consiste en una serie de exploraciones, performances, grabaciones y
composiciones utilizando las caracteristicas acusticas de un espacio
determinado para filtrar los sonidos del entorno y la voz, sin
utilizar ningun  efecto de sonido electronico.

Presentaran un disco de vinilo que fue uno de los objetos
resultantes de la realización de esta experiencia en la torre del
Centre International d’ Art et du Paysage, Ile de Vassivière (Francia) durante el invierno europeo 2013-14. La realización del disco de vinilo fue posible gracias al apoyo del la asociación Aloardi y del fondo Mondriaan.

‘Invisible Architecture’ explores the acoustic architecture of a tower through its surrounding sounds, subtle acoustic phenomena and the human voice. Resonances and reverberations are emphasized and prolonged through vocal interaction with sound space and not-conventional different microphone techniques. In this project Galarreta & van der Putten want to make the acoustic reflections audible, more than the direct source that generate it. The frequencies, amplitude, modulation of sound textures, as well as the breathing voice rhythm, the position of the microphones and its types, are responding to the qualities of the chosen site and its acoustic characteristics. This work was made this winter 2013-14 in the tower of the Centre International d’art et du paysage, Ile de Vassivière, France and was supported by the Mondriaan Fund. The compositions have been published in a LP with silkscreened cover (edition of 300) by label Aloardi on 10 July 2014. Here a link to listen.

Fundado en el año 1998, Aloardi inicia sus acciones como uno de los primeros sellos y colectivos independientes dedicados a difundir y producir música experimental y electrónica, arte con nuevos medios, intervenciones sonoras, investigaciones acústicas y expresiones culturales autóctonas de Sur y Centro America. ". Apoyamos y generamos colaboraciones entre diferentes individuos, grupos autogestionados e instituciones a nivel local, nacional e internacional. Organizando eventos y exhibiciones transdisciplinarias, compartimos conocimiento sobre recursos (no) tecnológicos, trabajo sostenible e intercambio entre comunidades locales. Ubicado en Lima, desde el 2004 nuestro local funciona como mediateca y sirve para la realización de encuentros, talleres, laboratorios de investigación, programas de residencias, producciones audiovisuales y transmisiones de radio por Internet. Puedes encontrar en este sitio web información sobre nuestra actividad reciente; para conocer mas de nuestra actividad pasada, puedes visitar nuestro antiguo sitio web.

Founded in Peru in 1998, Aloardi started as one of the first labels and independent iniciatives in South and Central America diffusing and producing experimental and electronic music, media art, sound related interventions, alternative acoustic research and autochthonous cultural expressions of its región. We support and generate collaborations between people with self-managed associations and institutions on local, national and international level. We organize events and transdisciplinary exhibitions, initiate actions and share knowledge: the association is engaged in approaches towards (non)technological resources, sustainable work and exchange with local communities. Based in Lima, our space serves since 2004 as venue for meetings, workshops, research laboratories, a residency program, audiovisual productions, internet radio broadcasts and a mediatheque.
