CORPUS is a project that brings together sound, visuals and architecture. Based on the principle of vibration in resonance with the built environment, the sound system consists of speakers, vibrators and a score generated in real time incorporating pure frequencies. The Corpus series as a whole offers a unique approach to architecture, revealing the unique musicality of specific buildings by exciting their multiple resonance frequencies. Each special event in the series takes the form of a unique scenario, providing a physical and ghostly experience of built space. For the duration of the installation or public concert, the specific materials and structures of the chosen site are activated by low frequencies and reveal the acoustic qualities of the architecture and it's surroundings. In parallel to the live events, some performances are recorded and shown in the form of a documentary film.
