This year’s theme is:

SonoMorphoTectural / MorphoSonicEctura
Transformation of bodies, situation and architecture by sound.

“I do not hear the world, I suffer it! ” From this perspective, we first receive sound directly without choice or mediation. Whether we want to listen or not, we cannot shut our ears. Yet beyond this particularity, we can consider the world as a composition in movement; as a music, melody or as a sound object for a sole listener: you, yourself and your ability to hear a complexity of noises and sounds in a given space.

Each sound experience of a space is different from one person to the next. The context of a place may concern a group of people, an institution or larger communities, but the first experience of sound is generally non-shared, it remains essentially individual in its reception.

If the transformation of an architectural space by sound, what we will call the SonoMorphoTecturality, allows us to imagine the multi-sensory experiences of a place beyond the threshold and the limit of the materiality of a construction, the body represents the ‘receiver’, an antenna potentially emitting with which the sound can interact and through this relationship provoke another vision of the composition of an architectonic.
