“Ghost Forest” is a compositional transposition of a multitude of original recordings – made in diverse forests all over the world by sound artist Francisco López– into the space of the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona. With the aim of creating an immersive environment, the original captured “reality” has been evolved through extreme filtering. This process has been carried out to reveal a ghostly spectrum of frequencies of the transposed forest environments. The different “spectral” sonic layers are automatically mixed live in the space (in ever changing combinations) through a special sound system specially designed for this installation. These sounds have been thoroughly worked in the studio as an automatic composition, both for this specific sound system and for the actual space of the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion.
The different “spectral” sonic layers are automatically mixed live in the space (in ever-changing combinations) through an array of small speakers spread out in the space of the Pavilion. These sounds have been thoroughly worked in the studio as an automatic composition, both for the specific speaker system used and for the actual space of the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion.
Ticket price: 4,75€. Just available at the Mies van der Rohe Pavillion box office. With the Sónar Pass and the Sónar by Day ticket access is granted.
