Andrews’ activation will utilise field recordings of maritime environments mixed through Atoui’s installation and draw from the vibrations of custom resonant objects.
Waters’ Witness is based on Atoui’s ongoing project documenting the acoustic identities of port cities that are deeply connected to their harbours. Recording sounds close to the sea and under the water, Atoui produces a unique score for each city which becomes part of the work’s growing soundscape and a source of inspiration for new sound sculptures and musical devices. As part of the exhibition, Atoui invites guest artists to collaborate with his work through sonic-based performances.
The MCA welcomes all visitors and is committed to making its programs and services accessible to everyone.
