SPACING + TIMING + RESEARCH
STRØM SCHOOL, KNOWLEDGE ARENA
SENSUOUS, v. Gry Worre Hallberg
Strøm Festival, Råhuset, København
This was site specific immersive set design at Råhuset, covering two floors, five rooms; classroom, synthesiser workshop, seminar and performance room, bar, stairways and an outdoor area. The brief was to implement sensuous set design theories in order to challenge and create new ways in which we learn to play and perform electronic music. The designs were based on the mathematical and rhythmical elements of synthesisers, music and soundwaves, which resulted in 10 individual sculptures and a connecting string installation. Students and workshop participants were invited to sit on the floor in circles on comfortable rugs and furs to explore new dynamics and challenge new modes of learning.
