Interval. Sound Actions, a new multimedia exhibition at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies aims to make visitors aware of the way they listen to sounds. According to Western musical tradition, we should listen to music in silence, but is that really a listening context? Interval. Sound Actions wants to challenge this way of thinking by making people listen to sounds in different spaces. How does music sound in a museum for instance? And how would the sound of the museum influence that same music? To answer these questions, a number of artists and musicians, including Brian Eno, Theo Burt, Susan Philipsz, Jaume Ferrete and Ainara Elgoibar have collaborated with this project which includes sound installations, videos, lectures, concerts and a series of radio programmes. Visitors will quickly learn that sound can be heard in many different ways.
