Recent City PhD graduates Erik Nyström and Peiman Khosravi are premiering Ambit, a new multichannel sound installation and electroacoustic concert event, at the Block 336 gallery in Brixton. The event is part of Everything Wants to Run, an international exhibition curated by Mark Jackson, featuring nine artists exploring concepts and conditions of materiality in contemporary art practice.
“Ambit explores visuospatial imagery evoked by the apparent physicality of sound material. Projected sonic images liquefy the surfaces and boundaries of the room, as if it were an elastic topology. Thus a mutable world of illusory spaces emerges that transcends the geometry of the listening environment — bringing into bringing into consciousness the tension between ‘here and now’ and a universe extending beyond.”
The gallery is going to be immersed in transforming sonic environments in an evening which takes spatial music in new directions, blending concert listening with the temporary non-linear spatial experiences of installation work.
