Installation: ‘Becoming-Siren’, digital audio, stereo, 11’51”; two loudspeakers; tube lamp; poetic text; 2014. Work by Chrs Galarreta (composition) and Janneke van der Putten (voice).

Installation that spatialises the poetic text and music of LP publication ‘Invisible Architecture I’. In this sound research the acoustic properties of a lighthouse on the Vassivière Island (2013) are explored. The resonance of the sounds are reinforced, and create immersive acoustic effects.
