Urban Songline, Immersive Soundscape


Merging sound and spatial design to create an immersive experience, Dutch performance artist Allard van Hoorn has created a site-specific installation for New York gallery Storefront for Art and Architecture, titled 007_Urban_Songline.

Interwoven networks of strings throughout the façade and gallery space transform the building into an interactive musical instrument. Visitors are invited to manoeuvre their way through the strings to produce a series of spatial soundtracks that, as well as being heard in real-time, will also be recorded and replayed throughout the space.

The façade contains 12 panels that rotate to reveal the length of the gallery.

The exhibition opens on January 17 2012 and runs for one month.
