Sound moves between inside and outside. It disturbs what may appear static while also providing moments of deep connection. It flows through the environment as temporal material lending dramatically to the experiences we have of being in particular buildings.
Room Tone is a project is developed by artist Brandon LaBelle which attempts to instigate conversations between sound and architecture through a set of audio recordings of the artist's apartment in Berlin. The audio recordings were sent to architects, which capture different qualities of the space, were sent to architects, designers and artists around the world whose task was to make a physical model of the apartment using the sounds as their only source of information. In this way, a process of translation and interpretation developed, incorporating an understanding, however factual or fantastical, of the auditory into creating a spatial form.
