Soundscape Architecture - Karen Van Lengen

Karen Van Lengen has created a series of sonic portraits of iconic buildings rendered here with beautiful animations. We are regularly treated to attempts to create meaningful concilience between different environments and information sets. This is a rare occasion on which it works quite beautifully. There is an effortless sense of genuine cause and effect when watching the accompanying visualizations. They seem genuinely to lend something to the carefully prepared acoustic snapshots of each space. Of course any correspondence involves making aesthetic choices but these beguiling, translucent "Tanguy - esque" scenes illustrate and augment the sounds perfectly.
