Objet Sonore Deformation

The exhibition Objet Sonore Deformation at TheCube Project Space attempts to respond to how the way of listening in the human world has been dramatically transformed since the advent of recording technology – recorded sound are used extensively in sound composition, rather than playing through abstract notation tools, resulting in ‘L’Objet Sonore’ (sound object), a concept developed by Pierre Schaeffer in 1948. This concept was then seen as a reformative creation in the concept of composition and performance, subverting the aural relationship between human and sound, and laying the foundations for the development of Musique Concrète (concrete music) and today’s electronic and hip-hop music.
