In Disenchanted Island, composer Olga Neuwirth re-created the antiphonic acoustic space of the Venetian San Lorenzo church in a black-box gallery environment, webbed with multiple speakers. Tal Rosner’s digital assemblages, some simple and some complex, illustrate the soundscape with an additional perspective. Using photographic and imaginary fragments of San Lorenzo’s architecture and its surroundings as his base, he processes the forms in a way that allows new viewpoints, rooted in the principles of parametric design.
