In both Cinema and Music, listening is informed by the spectatorial protocols of the theatre. As cinema scholar Morten Meldgaard stated “moving pictures only became cinema when it encountered architecture, [when] the movie-house [became] a spatio-temporal construct for the social venue of cinematic viewing”. 1 Music, on the other hand, has been integrated with the theatre house since its fundamental affiliation with the beginnings of the opera.
Sound Theory (The Clouds) explores the theatre context as a fundamental infrastructure of staging that focuses and synchronizes the attention of spectators.
