#1 Listening Sessions

Hybrid Listening

an architectural intervention by Frédérique Albert-Bordenave

Building an ongoing visual and spatial archive

Buro Stedelijk started by listening, turning its birth into a query on alternative means of seeing and being into an experimental and hybrid looping process. Hybridity as a constant process of negotiation between different forms or shapes, a form of dialogue.

The concept approached the Listening Sessions as a practice and extension of Buro Stedelijk’s investigation of what happens when mixing things together.

As the Listening Sessions will be a recurring event organised by Buro Stedelijk, the concept looks at temporality as an asset by building upon each Listening Session to create an ongoing visual and spatial archive.

Documenting as we go and grow with the following elements:

• Scaffolding for their temporality, familiarity and flexibility are brought indoor as an act of framing and reframing hinting at the constant flux in the nature of the listening sessions.

• Acoustic foams are diverted and used as pillows to cover the wooden benches of the Stedelijk, exploring materiality for listening in a different approach to sound proofing, which is typically used to keep sound from escaping or entering a room rather than changing the properties of sound within the room itself.

• A GAN was created as a timestamp of the space using as dataset pictures taken in the location in which it took place, for #1 the auditorium of the Stedelijk Museum, to create new images that morph fluidly between generated states.

• Scaffolding netting are used as canvas for the new generated images of the auditorium and information about the listening sessions to be printed on.

Hybrid Listening

is a place to discover Amsterdam’s dynamic and forward-thinking art scene.
