Musarc Salon: BANG! Being the Building. Barbican, London. 26 January 2012













As part of the OMA/Progress exhibition at the Barbican Centre, London – Musarc, the experimental architecture unit exploring sound, architecture and perception based at London Metropolitan University have commissioned a new film and talk by sound artist Davide Tidoni which explores sonic impulse responses inside and around the Barbican by popping a balloon. Recorded during periods of silence, often at night, the results of such a seemingly mundane act are humourous and mesmerising. The first work in this series, A balloon for Linz, received an honorary mention at the Prix Ars Electronica 2011.

The evening will include a performance by the Musarc choir.

Admission free. 
26 January 2012, 19.00h. 
Barbican Art Gallery.

OMA/Progress. 6 Oct 11 – 19 Feb 2012. Barbican Art Gallery, Silk Street, London EC2Y 8DS
