Sound Theory (The Clouds)

Staged Listening

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.
