Tuned City is a platform researching relations between sound and space in the urban context. The project draws the traditions of critical discussion about urban space within the architecture and urban planning discourse–as well as its strategies and working methods–into the context of sound and listening. This expanded discussion reinforces the potential of the spatial and communicative properties of sound as a tool and means of urban practice.
Tuned City in the Ancient City of Messini will be a departure from all previous editions, one that investigates an important theme for the Interfaces project: how can contemporary performance practice and research reveal new facets of our relationship to history and, conversely, how can our interest in the past inform our openness to contemporary music and sound art.
