Ways of seeing sound

Els Viaene 2022

Ways of seeing sound is a science lab, an installation, and a performance lecture held at Lydgalleriet in December 2021– January 2022 by Els Viaene.

Working on sound materials for performances, sound compositions and installations, Viaene suggests listeners travel in imaginary and organic environments. Through specific uses and set-ups of sound within a space, her installations create and show new spaces within existing ones, either emphasising or making disappear the physical spatial borders. In doing so she often plays with the notions of seeing and hearing, and how the perception of what we see and hear are interfered with each other.
